Abstract

The tailor's bunion deformity can be very debilitating for patients considering surgical intervention. Here we describe a minimally invasive surgical approach to correcting this deformity utilizing a new intramedullary fixation system within the fifth metatarsal. We are pleased to describe that this implant offers an immense amount of inherent stability and allows for translation of the fifth metatarsal head both dorsally and medially to account for abnormal plantar and/or lateral pressure secondary to the deformity.
