Abstract

Diabetic chronic wounds with joint sepsis and osteomyelitis of the hindfoot can be difficult pathologic entities to treat. Limb salvage approaches are based on careful preoperative evaluation, surgical technique, and postoperative care. This article reviews the overall management of subtalar joint osteomyelitis with a case report showing primary arthrodesis with external fixation and soft tissue coverage with a reverse sural artery neurofasciocutaneous flap.
