Salvaging Failed McBride Procedure

1

R. bunion recurrence after McBride procedure was corrected with syndesmosis procedure at the same time as L. foot




This female had recurrence of bunion deformity and pain after the non-bone-breaking McBride procedure of her R foot. Her left foot bunion deformity also became painful and both of her feet underwent the non-bone-breaking syndesmosis procedure at the same time. Her excellent result could be seen by her truly narrowed first intermetatarsal space and forefoot and improved function study test by F-Scan©.

L. bunion recurrence after McBride procedure was corrected with syndesmosis procedure at the same time as R. foot




This lady had recurrence of bunion deformity and pain after the non-bone-breaking McBride procedure of her left foot. McBride procedure is now mostly disfavored due to its ineffectiveness and recurrence shortcomings. After the new non-bone-breaking syndesmosis procedure of her feet at the same time, she has since been able to return to regular shoes and activities without pain because her feet were truly narrowed and big toes function was restored as shown by the function study with F-Scan®.


3

Bilateral bunion recurrence after McBride procedure was corrected with bilateral syndesmosis procedure at the same time




This female had recurrence of bunion deformity and pain after the non-bone-breaking McBride bunion surgery of her both feet. After the non-bone-breaking syndesmosis procedure, her feet could fit in shoes that she could not before without pain. Her painful plantar calluses also disappeared due likely to restoration of normal foot function as demonstrated by her plantar pressure study with F-Scan®. She was grateful to be able to enjoy walking again.

P.S.: Notice the space between first and second metatarsal bones could be truly reduced without breaking any of them.
