Why do ankle arthrodeses
fail in patients with rheumatic disease?
Midfoot and hindfoot arthrodeses
in diabetic Charcot arthropathy.
Operative treatments included 50 instrumented arthrodeses
for scoliosis (21 degenerative, 27 idiopathic, and 2 congenital).
Transplantation surgery of bone and joint system is still not developed enough in our country, but nevertheless it is applied in revision hip and knee arthroplasty procedures, in reconstructive surgeries on ligaments and tendons (chronic instability of knee and shoulder joint, tendon defects), in tumor and spinal surgery, in joint arthrodeses

Pulsing electromagnetic field treatment in ununited fractures and failed arthrodeses
Use of circular external skeletal fixator constructs to stabilize tarsometatarsal arthrodeses
in three dogs.
These included three knee endoprostheses, one new hinged APC, and two knee arthrodeses
Further procedures that may be required for the tendons including repair/tenolysis/transfers, neurolysis for the nerves, selective arthrodeses
and prolonged physiotherapy during the next 1 year have been explained to the patient.
In such cases, their arthrodeses
were secured with K-wires until union was confirmed by x-ray, a process that occurred within 8 weeks in 92% of cases.
Bone morphogenic protein has shown promise as a grafting material in cases of subtalar arthrodeses
. Duplication of this technique has been attempted with respect to spinal fusion, in an operation that could potentially eliminate the need to harvest iliac crest graft.
Of the 27 patients, 6 of them required additional procedures: 5 radiocarpal arthrodeses
and 1 DRUJ prosthesis.
