Abstract

Charcot Neuroarthropathy (CN) is a debilitating condition that results in complex foot and ankle deformity. Loss of normal pedal architecture can cause gait dysfunction as well as soft-tissue compromise and limb loss. Foot and ankle surgeons have treated CN with and without operative intervention. Operative techniques to treat midfoot and hindfoot deformities with internal and external fixation have been described in the literature. Despite a lack of consensus as to the fixation method, articles have attempted to identify features that necessitate operative intervention. This article proposes recommendations for surgeons to utilize when correcting CN with hexapodassisted circular external fixation.
