Partial Excisional Matrixectomies

A matrixectomy is the process of excising or destroying the germinal matrix of the nail. The germinal matrix is the area of the toenail in which the toenail grows from. The matrix is located directly underneath the cuticle.

When a partial matrixectomy is performed, this means that only a portion (usually the sides) of the matrix is removed. The Frost and Winograd procedures are examples. Please click on the links below for more details and pictures.
