Abstract
We analyzed our experience with infected tibial pseudoarthrosis which resulted in a therapeutic plan for a radical operation or a step-by-step method, depending on the type of pseudarthrosis (PS), the severity of the infection, and the skin damage.

We think that external fixation with the Wagner device is the procedure of choice. Owing to its simplicity and good stability, it is possible to treat the PS and the infection and to obtain good final results.
