Hardware from Fulkerson Osteonomy coming through the skin
« on: June 17, 2013, 11:40:27 PM »
Has anyone ever heard of their hardware coming out? Mine is....I scheduled the surgery to have it taken out and was told that if they scape all the way through they would have to come out as an emergency.  The Fulkersonn had to be redone because the bone never healed with the screws so I needed a bone graph.  I'm concerned because of the original healing issue, that I will have to be careful because they will be 2 wholes in my tibia.  Has anyone else had this issue?

I have not had a Fulkerson, but have been following people who have because I probably will need one.  Many people have had their hardware out, non-union on the other had seems rare.  Maybe ask the moderator to move this post to the patella femoral section.  You would probably get a few responses.  Good luck.  Most likely you have had the procedure already.
