The interdigital clavus (soft corn) may become a painful and debilitating problem for many patients, especially those who fail to respond to conservative treatment. Partial syndactylization has been a surgical option for many years, and anecdotal evidence has shown this surgical technique to be successful. However, a study that includes a large number of patients with long-term follow-up has not been performed. We detail the surgical technique of partial toe syndactylization for the treatment of the painful, recalcitrant, interdigital clavus and report the excellent long-term clinical results achieved by partial toe syndactylization.
