Extensor digitorum brevis transfer for crossover toe increases motion, while avoiding complications
The crossover toe deformity, defined by sagittal and/or horizontal plane instability of the second toe, is a variant of a clawtoe or hammertoe deformity. Patients with a crossover toe may also present with a hammertoe or clawtoe component. However, if they are treated for a hammertoe or clawtoe in isolation without the ligament instability about the metatarsophalangeal joint being addressed, recurrence of deformity is common.
