Abstract

Background: Freiberg's infraction is an osteochondrosis that is characterized by osteonecrosis of the metatarsal head, with pain and tenderness around the metatarsophalangeal joint. We sought to evaluate the outcome of joint debridement and metatarsal remodeling for the treatment of advanced-stage Freiberg's infraction.
