Front foot Rheumatoid

The forefoot, like other anatomical sites, can be affected by rheumatoid arthritis.
Polyarthritis acts by precipitating the evolution of natural deformations, while associating them with more or less severe joint destruction (arthritis).
Hallux valgus is often more pronounced, usually associated with claw toes and large metatarsalgia (pain under the foot) with bulky callus.
At the disabling stage, surgery is necessary, and consists three times out of four in the practice of arthrodesis of the big toe (cf. chapter «Hallux Rigidus» for the technique) associated with a gesture on the other rays.
