Worldwide, osteoarthritis (OA) is a leading cause of disability. The prevalence of symptomatic radiographic first metatarsophalangeal (MTPJ) OA has been reported to be 7.8%. It has been demonstrated to decrease general health-related quality of life, but successful treatment strategies are available.
The authors present a service evaluation that compares the outcomes of first metatarsophalangeal joint (MTPJ) arthrodesis at Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust against national podiatric surgery data held on the PASCOM-10 system, including complication rates and two different PROMs: the Manchester–Oxford Foot Questionnaire (MOXFQ) and the Patient Satisfaction Questionnaire (PSQ-10).
