Abstract

External fixation in arthrodesis of the midfoot offers a versatile alternative when internal fixation is contraindicated or impossible. Most often, the small wire fixator, such as the Ilizarov device, provides the stability that is necessary to achieve solid union. External fixation allows for continual compression and the ability to produce gradual deformity correction, if necessary.
