Özet

Charcot neuroarthropathy is associated with progressive, noninfectious, osteolysis-induced bone and joint destruction. When the ankle and/or hindfoot is affected by the destruction process, management is further complicated with collapse and destruction of the talar body, which increases instability around the ankle. In this patient population, arthrodesis is the most commonly used surgical procedure. Internal fixation, external fixation, or a combination of both can be used for the treatment. Decision making between them should be individualized according to the patient characteristics.
