Figure 3: (a) Severely infected nonunion lower tibia. 8 months duration. (b) Foul smelling discharge, inadequate fi xator, nonweight bearing. (c) Debridement with beads at nonunion site. Reaming of canal and antibiotic cement-coated rod inserted. (d) Ilizarov fi xator applied. Twodebridements done. Antibiotic cement block inserted. (e) Bone transport modality chosen as it is most reliable. Gigli saw corticotomy done proximally. Hypertrophic regenerate with one episode of premature consolidation. (f) Sound union. No deformity and limb length discrepancy. Spontaneousfusion at ankle joint. (g) Minimal functional deesability despite ankle fusion. Good union and eradication of infection despite poor soft tissue cover
