Description: The Lapidus procedure is a corrective fusion of the 1st TMT joint with a distal soft-tissue correction. It is designed to stabilise a hypermobile first ray. It can also be useful when a severe deformity is associated with 1st TMT OA or an adult acquired flatfoot deformity.
Like a proximal osteotomy, it is at increased risk of dorsal malunion and there is also the risk of symptomatic non-union.
