Abstract

Seven patients with nonbraceable, neuropathic ankle joints have been successfully treated by tibiocalcaneal arthrodesis utilizing an adolescent condylar blade plate, large cannulated AO screws, and a special cancellous allograft mixture. All patients had fragmentation and partial resorption of the talus. This procedure was considered as an alternative to below-knee amputation. Goals were limb salvage and limited community ambulation.
