Dorsal approach to P1

The veins are superficial and should be preserved, especially those which run longitudinally in the long axis of the toe.

Anatomy

The veins are superficial and should be preserved, especially those which run longitudinally in the long axis of the toe. The arteries and the nerves are basically situated on the medial and on the lateral aspects of the toe.
The best approach to the toe is therefore in the sagittal plane, in line with the dorsal axis of the toe.
