Big toe pain – everything you need to know – dr. nabil

In most cases, a v-shaped bone is created during bunion surgery to translate the head of the first metatarsal laterally, resulting in an overhang of bone from the previous location of the bone (pictured left). The overhang is removed, and the new location of the bone is secured with screws, staples, or pins, as is the case here. The pin is buried and will remain there indefinitely (pictured right).
X-rays showing bunion correction with the great toe deviated laterally (left image) and the location of the sesamoid bones, which are small circular bones near the joint. The alignment of the great toe is greatly improved in the post-surgical film (right image), and the location of the sesamoids is under the 1st metatarsal head, as it should be. Two surgical screws were used to secure the correction in this situation.

Bunions – common causes and treatment options

Objective and abstract

Foot xray – detailed explanation – radiology

The aim of this study was to see how weightbearing x-ray imaging affected clinical decisions in hallux valgus. The normal imaging for symptomatic hallux valgus is a weightbearing (WB) x-ray (HV). Patients often present with non-weightbearing (NWB) x-rays in our clinical practice. Repeated imaging necessitates more radiation, which is only acceptable if it is intended to improve the patient’s care. The impact of WB status on radiological HV parameters and clinical decisions was investigated in this report. Methodologies The hallux valgus (HVA) and intermetatarsal angle (IMA) were determined and variations analyzed in the WB and NWB x-ray datasets. A total of 40 people were polled about their clinical decisions for ten x-ray pairs. Conclusions The HVA difference between the WB and NWB was 16 to 16° (p 0.001), and the IMA difference was 3.4 to 5.8° (p 0.001). The decisions based on NWB and WB imaging were compatible in just 45 percent of cases (kappa (95 percent CI) = 30.0 (23.7–36.3)). Final Thoughts Clinical decisions made on the basis of WB and NWB radiographs differ greatly. Early HV deformity is overestimated in NWB films, while advanced HV deformity is underestimated. In patients with symptomatic HV and NWB radiographs, repeating radiographs is justified.

Fracture of the fifth metatarsal

The big toe has a bunion. An X-ray of a patient’s foot showing a bunion before (left) and after (right) surgery. The joint between the big toe (hallux) and the first metatarsal bone is swollen in a bunion. Hallux valgus is a joint deformation in which the joint at the base of the big toe projects outwards while the toe tip bends inwards. In severe cases, a bursa, a small sac of fibrous tissue filled with synovial fluid, can develop. Corrective surgery (at right) straightened the big toe and removed an excess development at the joint site. The wearing of ill-fitting shoes is a common cause of bunions.

Hallux rigidus

South Korean researchers have developed a new approach for predicting whether bunions will reappear after surgery. Using X-ray imaging, the team determined that reemergence was described as a hallux valgus angle (HVA) of 20 degrees or more. The team was able to predict the recurrence of bunions using this data. If the postoperative HVA was eight degrees or higher, recurrence was more likely. Reemergence following surgery was also more likely when the HVA was 40 degrees or higher. More analysis, the researchers hope, will validate the findings, which will benefit future surgeries and patients.
Swollen tissue or an enlargement of boney growth forms a bunion, which is normally found at the base joint of the toe where it attaches to the foot. The swelling is caused by the big toe’s bones moving inward, affecting the other toes of the foot. The region around the base of the big toe becomes inflamed and painful as a result of this.
When attempting to diagnose bunions, doctors often use two tests: blood tests and x-rays, particularly in the early stages of growth. Blood tests can help decide whether your foot pain is due to anything else, such as arthritis, and x-rays can give your doctor a better picture of your bone structure.
