    Published results showed proximal interphalangeal joint arthrodesis had no clinical differences when compared with joint resection arthroplasty for correction of lesser toe deformities.
    “The goal of this randomized study was to compare clinical outcomes after lesser toe deformity correction with either proximal interphalangeal joint arthrodesis or PIP joint resection arthroplasty,” Sebastian Scheidt, MD, told Healio.
    Scheidt and colleagues randomly assigned 37 patients with lesser toe deformity to undergo either PIP joint arthrodesis or PIP joint resection arthroplasty.
