Chronic osteomyelitis of the femur with segmental bone defect: Concepts and treatment

Abstract

Chronic osteomyelitis of the femur has always been a challenging scenario for the treating surgeon. It leads to morbidity to the patient as it interferes with the patient’s rehabilitation and mobilisation. This is further complicated with the presence of a segmental bone loss following debridement due to the infection. We present a case of a young man who had a femur fracture which was initially treated with intramedullary nailing and subsequently was complicated with deep surgical site infection leading to chronic osteomyelitis.
