A new first metatarsophalangeal joint implant arthroplasty is described. The two-component, titanium alloy and polyethylene prosthesis designed for weightbearing is noncemented and press-fit. Sixteen cases involving 18 implants were evaluated over 18 months with evidence that good correction and pain free motion can be obtained.
