Tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis using a reamed retrograde locking nail.

New techniques for tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis ideally should improve union rate and reduce the complication rate. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the union rate of tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis achieved using an intramedullary nail without formal debridement of the subtalar joint and open or percutaneous debridement of the ankle joint… CONTINUE READING
