Abstract Surgery of the rheumatoid foot and ankle Initial presentation of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) will be foot and ankle symptoms in 20% of cases. Eventually, 50-90% of patients will develop foot and ankle alterations. Typical deformities of the forefoot include hallux valgus and dorso-lateral dislocation of the lesser metatarso-phalangeal joints. RA involvement of the hindfoot frequently leads to plano-valgus deformity. Approximately 20% of surgery performed for RA is done at the foot and ankle. Early surgery is efficient against pain and deformity. Patient's satisfaction rate after surgery is high despite a slight higher complication rate compared to conventional foot and ankle surgery.
