Arthroscopically-assisted knee joint arthrodesis by custom-made intramedullary locking nail with simultaneous femur deformity correction (case report)

Abstract


Post-traumatic intra- and extra-articular deformities of the bones forming the knee joint, multiple previous surgeries, fibrous ankylosis of the knee joint is unfavorable background for performing total knee joint arthroplasty. In case of refusal to perform knee arthroplasty, the «gold standard» is knee arthrodesis. Standard techniques used in performing this operation are traumatic and associated with a high volume of intraoperative blood loss. Using such a surgical option as arthroscopically-assisted arthrodesis can reduce the level of surgical invasive- ness and minimize blood loss, while allowing you to perform this operation no less effectively than using traditional approaches. As a clinical example, we have presented arthroscopically-assisted arthrodesis of the knee joint in a patient with posttraumatic deformity of the femur and fibrous ankylosis of the knee joint with a good medium-term functional result.
