Surgical Management of Charcot Deformity for the Foot and Ankle—Radiologic Outcome After Internal/External Fixation

Charcot neuropathy (CN) is a severe joint disease that makes surgical planning very challenging, because it is combined with ankle instability, serious deformities, and recurrent ulceration. The aim of the present study was to examine the rate of bone fusion after external or internal fixation in patients with CN.
