Abstract

Correction of digital deformities by an arthroplasty procedure is by far the most commonly used technique. However, the choice of procedure is complicated by contradictory methods described in many texts. The goal of surgery is to maintain as much function as possible, achieve a cosmetic result, and give the best prognosis for avoidance of recurrence.
