Summary:

The review illustrates various approaches to the potential of minimally invasive surgery in forefoot static deformities treatment. We demonstrated that methods aimed at the performance of nonlocking wedge osteotomy of first metatarsal bone and of proximal phalanx of big toe with preservation of cortex wedge contralateral to the base as well as of central metatarsal, extending tenotomies of flexors without tendon suture are the base for minimally invasive correction of forefoot static deformities providing orthopedically correct orientation of metatarsal heads under the early full postoperative load on the foot and preventing excessive dislocation of tendon ends.
