Abstract


The authors presented a clinical observation of treating a patient with chronic osteomyelitis of the talus and calcaneus. They performed the surgical treatment using transosseous osteosynthesis that included two stages: debridement of purulent focus; orthopedic reconstruction of the hindfoot bones. The treatment resulted in stable remission of osteomyelitic process and limb weight bearing recovery.
