For the patient who cannot afford an artificial leg, or for the laborer, the amputation with calcaneotibial arthrodesis, as described, gives an excellent weight-bearing stump and relieves the patient of the inconvenience incident to the use of an artificial limb. The operation is more advantageous both from an anatomical and from a physiological standpoint than other amputations through the region of the ankle or the tarsus.
