HemiCAP DF – Hemi Arthroplasty of the 1st MTP

The Hemicap joint restoration technology is an excellent option for patients who are seeking to maintain a more active lifestyle and it bridges the gap between a cheilectomy and a fusion plate or total toe joint replacement.

The hemicap implants are carefully designed to match the cartilage contour of individual joints so that the cap replaces only the area of damaged cartilage and protects the remaining (healthy) cartilage in the joint.

The idea is that the implant prevents further damage to the joint and works to maintain the natural movement of the foot and toes.

Instead of a one-piece implant with a stem built in, the Hemicap consists of a cap and screw that join. These implants are well proven and robust with no reported loosening over the last 10 years.

  • Achieve 90 degrees of DF intra-operatively
  • Include phalangeal soft tissue releases
  • Use fluoroscopy for reliable pin placement
  • Reduction of impact forces, through joint decompression
  • Return to work within seven days

Should the patient already have wear on the phalanx, ToeMotion which addresses both sides of the joint can be used as a primary option.

ToeMotion can also be used in revision HemiCAP cases where the patient is still keen to continue with a fuller motion of joint.
