Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review

This review summarises the present knowledge of diagnosing and treating hallux rigidus in Denmark. Hallux rigidus is a degenerative disease of the first metatarsophalangeal joint. The pathology of the joint can be visualised on standing radiograph of the foot. If conservative treatment measures fail to provide adequate pain relief, surgery will be an option for most patients. Several procedures are adequate for the treatment of hallux rigidus, and especially surgery show good or excellent results for most patients.
