Acta Orthop Scand. 1966;37(4):409-414
Kivilaakso R, Langenskiöld A, Salenius P


Fifty-five patients on whom talocrural or pantalar arthrodesis had been performed as a treatment for post-fracture conditions were re-examined. Various methods of arthrodesis were used. Good results were achieved in 43 cases, satisfactory in 5 and poor in 7. These are in accordance with the results published elsewhere. Adams’ method is recommended.
