Abstract

CASE: A 7-year-old girl presented with a recurrent hammertoe deformity causing pain with shoe wearing after a prior corrective surgery. Surgical revision required a unique approach that included a staged corrective osteotomy of the proximal phalanx because of hypoperfusion management and the application of a rotational skin flap previously described for camptodactyly correction in the hand to avoid harvesting a skin graft.

CONCLUSION: Revision surgery for recurrent pediatric hammertoe deformity requires a heightened awareness of the risk for toe hypoperfusion and subsequent wound closure challenges.
