Hallux rigidus is a condition, which is defined as degenerative arthritis of the first metatarsophalangeal joint. Hallux rigidus occurs due to repetitive micro trauma or wear and tear on the first MPJ. The surgical treatments for the condition are thought of in two ways: joint salvage or joint destruction. The total implant discussed throughout this paper is a joint salvage technique. Joint salvage procedures aim to preserve the motion of the first MPJ. This study was conducted using the Arthrosurface Toe Motion Total Toe System™. The study consisted of using 17 implants in a total of 14 patients. The Arthrosurface Toe Motion Total Toe System™ is comprised of a poly-metal interface as opposed to some the earlier designs utilized for first metatarsal phalangeal joint implantation. In considering treatment implications, it is to be noted that the patients in this study were either a Coughlin stage 3 or 4.
