INTRODUCTION To address midfoot instability of Charcot disease a promising intramedullary implant has recently been developed to allow for an arthrodesis of the bones of the medial foot column in an anatomic position. We report on a group of patients with Charcot arthropathy and instability at the midfoot where the Midfoot Fusion Bolt had been employed as(More)
INTRODUCTION Charcot arthropathy may lead to a loss of osteoligamentous foot architecture and consequently loss of the plantigrade alignment. In this series of patients a technique of internal corrective arthrodesis with maximum fixation strength was provided in order to lower complication rates. MATERIALS/METHODS 21 feet with severe nonplantigrade(More)
BACKGROUND All diabetic neuroosteoarthropathy (Charcot arthropathy) treatment concepts are focused on a long-term infection-free, ulcer-free, and plantigrade sufficiently stable foot in order to avoid amputation. Reconstructive arthrodesis techniques for severe deformities are associated with high postoperative complication rates. This study reports a(More)
