Toes so ugly want to hide
after Vitek´s surgery full of pride !

Tailor's Bunion

Due to a very wide splay the fifth metatarsal head may push outwards, causing shoe problems and pressure. This deformity is like a reversed hallux, and we operate this using the mini hallux plate. Advantages are the immediate weight-bearing capacity, no shortenings, and a stable bone assembly (osteosynthesis).

The new minimalivasive operation of the tailors bunion:

An example:

Hallux (red arrow) and tailor's bunion (black arrow) plagued this foot.

Hallux und Schneiderballen

Solution: After only 1 month there is barely any swelling or pain, the patient is able to walk well. The two V-tek 30 mm plates are visible in the X-ray. These are minimally invasive, i.e. inserted with the smallest cuts.

One more example:

A young patient with a disturbing tailor's bunion(arrow). After surgery, the cusp is gone, the patient is symptom-free.

X-ray before surgery: The V. metatarsal head rotates outwards and sticks out (arrow).

After the operation: the head was "turned inwards" and shifted by almost a full shaft width to the foot center.

For these smaller conditions with inside-bone dimensions of a few millimeters, we have developed the V-tek microplate. The function and the metatarsophalangeal joint are fully maintained (instead of a pure ablation) and the foot became narrower significantly.

The plate is only a millimeter thick, it does not bother, so can be left there.
