The author presents a case report with a 1-year follow-up period demonstrating successful bone graft stabilization of an iatrogenic flail second toe. The author discusses the techniques for calcaneal autogenous bone grafting for reconstruction of the iatrogenic shortened toe combined with ancillary procedures to improve the digital length pattern. After 18 months, this staged approach to stabilization of the digit and realignment of the digital length pattern appears to be successful.
