Three surgical techniques were used: tibiotalar arthrodesis with screw fixation, tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis with screw fixation, and tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis with an intramedullary nail. As experience was gained, the benefits and problems became apparent.(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the outcome of periprosthetic fractures above a total knee arthroplasty treated by LISS plate fixation. The primary outcome measure was the radiological union. Secondary outcome measures were knee function using the Oxford Knee Score, and quality of life using the SF-12 questionnaire. Over a 4-year period we treated 16(More)
