Infected nonunions of the tibia pose significant challenges for complete resolution and functional restoration. The infection is chronic and resistant to treatment. Bones are osteoporotic, deformed, sclerotic, and nonreactive at the nonunion site. There are formidable gaps to fill and large discrepancies to equalize. Tibia and fibula are differentially deficient. Stiffness of the ankle and knee creates functional handicaps. Prolonged treatment causes psychological, social, and economic hardships.
