Abstract

Knee arthrodesis is often used as a salvage procedure for infected, nonreconstructable total knee arthroplasties. We report 3 cases of infected total knee arthroplasties treated with knee fusion using locking compression plates. After at least 2 years of follow-up, these patients have healed with improvement in both symptoms and mobility.
