A new operative procedure was devised to treat polysyndactyly of the fifth toe. This procedure, which consists of removal of the fifth toe, correction of the alignment of the preserved sixth toe by arthroplasty and construction of an interdigital space by Z-plasty, is technically simple and produces good results, both functionally and aesthetically.
