ABSTRACT: The authors have performed a retrospective study on 25 patients who were treated with perone pro-tibia transposition because of tibial non-union at the Orthopaedic Clinic of Genova University between 1955 and 1985. Eight of these patients have been examined with an average follow-up of 19.5 years: their long-term radiographs have constantly shown valgus deviation of the ankle joint and no morpho-structural modifications of the fibula, in support of the hypothesis that it does not replace the tibia but behaves like the inert bar of an external fixation device.
