Irreducible Dorsal Dislocation of First Metatarsophalangeal Joint by Closed Method: Report of a Case

Abstract

Traumatic dislocation of the first metatarso-phalangeal joint is rare injury. The mechanism of this injury is hyperextension of the great toe, causing displacement of the proximal phalanx on the dorsum of the first metatarsal head and neck. The complex soft tissue anatomy surrounding this joint interferes with the closed reduction of the dislocation. This paper describes a patient with complete dorsal dislocation of the first metatarsophalangeal joint treated at the Paik hospital which cannot be reduced by closed manipulation.
