Abstract

There are many causes of large bone defects in the tibiotalar joint that need to be definitively treated with a tibiotalocalcaneal (TTC) arthrodesis. Some of the challenges of a large defect are its effect on leg length and the complications associated with trying to fill the defect with structural bone graft. We present an operative strategy involving the use of a trabecular metal implant, a TTC nail that utilized 2 forms of compression, and Reamer/Irrigator/Aspirator (RIA) autograft, to address limitations of previous operative approaches and reliably treat this operative challenge.
