Description: Objectives: We evaluated the results of arthrodesis using a monolateral external fixator for the treatment of septic sequelae of the knee joint.
Conclusion: Knee arthrodesis using a monolateral external fixator is associated with a high fusion rate and a low complication rate, and provides a more comfortable treatment option compared to a circular external fixator.
