    Arthrodesis of the first metatarsophalangeal joint was first described over 100 years ago and is still considered by many surgeons to be the most appropriate procedure for hallux rigidus. The technique is associated with unwelcome side-effects, which should be appreciated to achieve the most satisfactory results. The aim of this article is to discuss the development of various techniques and their advantages over arthroplasty procedures.
