Arthrodesis - Definition


Definition


Arthrodesis is a surgical operation which consists of fusing a joint. It is irreversible and done to correct a joint lesion or alleviate pain linked to movements made by this joint. The small joints are those most often fused, mainly the ankles and wrists. Arthrodesis is recommended in the case of overuse of the joint, a traumatic accident, osteoarthritis, a malformation, or a degenerative disease.
