Medial utility incision

Skin incision

For the medial approach to the navicular, the area along the medial utility incision over the navicular is used. The incision can be extended proximally to allow access to the talonavicular joint, or distally for access to the cuneiforms, first metatarsal base and naviculo-cuneiform and intertarsal joints.
