We report the use of a double toe fillet flap combined with reconstruction of the joint capsule of the metatarsal proximal phalanx (MP) in a diabetic patient with a chronic persistent deep plantar ulcer and an avulsed third MP joint. Not only was the soft tissue defect dealt with, but also the stability of the MP joint was increased by the vascularised extensor tendon provided by the pedicled toe fillet flap.
