Superficial Dissection

Skin

Mark

Mark a 3 cm linear incision line on the skin between the extensor hallucis longus and brevis tendons, starting directly proximal to the the 1st and 2nd tarsometatarsal joints and extending distally.

Alternative dorsolateral incision

A dorsolateral incision can be made in case the cuboid, the 4th and/or 5th metatarsal need to be exposed. The incision is centered over the tarsometatarsal joints area, roughly in line with the fourth metatarsal, and follows similar steps to the ones described in this procedure.
