We describe a case of Charcot ankle arthropathy in a 43-year-old male patient who underwent revision surgery for tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis with a retrograde intramedullary nonvascularized fibular graft. After 3 months of postoperative stabilization with a ring external fixator, successful radiographic union was identified. The findings obtained at 33 months postoperatively showed maintenance of solid fusion and restoration of hindfoot alignment without any complications.
