Periprosthetic Fracture after Femoral Intramedullary Nail Use in Two Cases of Tibiotalocalcaneal Arthrodesis

Abstract: Tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis using intramedullary nail fixation is a technically demanding procedure. Periprosthetic fracture in association with tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis is a rare occurrence, with relatively few instances reported. The present report describes 2 such instances that occurred after tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis using retrograde femoral intramedullary nail fixation.
