TORONTO — Patients who underwent interpositional arthroplasty of the first metatarsophalangeal joint experienced good clinical outcomes and more than half reported excellent satisfaction, according to results presented at the American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society Annual Meeting.

“Our conclusion is that interpositional arthroplasty demonstrates good clinical results, even at long-term final follow-up, and we believe this is a useful alternative procedure for the treatment of hallux rigidus,” Michael Aynardi, MD, said in his presentation here.
