Abstract

Traumatic dislocations of the first metatarsophalangeal joint were first described by Mouchet in 1931. The anatomical complexity of the first metatarsophalangeal joint makes this injury one of a kind. There have been only been a limited number of case reports of this injury, but none in combination with open fractures of both sesamoids. We would like to report 1 case of an open traumatic dislocation of the first metatarsophalangeal joint with open fracture of the fibular and tibial sesamoid. Open reduction and internal fixation of the injury led to a successful outcome.
