Despite technological breakthroughs in treatment techniques, definitive surgical treatment of Charcot’s arthropathy remains a difficulty. Several techniques for achieving stable ankle joint arthrodesis have been proposed. In recent research, deformity correction and arthrodesis with internal fixation have shown encouraging results. In this case report, we have described a case of severe destruction of both ankle joints treated by arthrodesis with a retrograde interlocking nail. Bilateral ankle arthrodesis in end-stage arthritis of the ankle joint is rare to find. This study addresses the proper surgical management in terms of approach and usage of appropriate implants to improve the long-term functional outcome when dealing with end-stage arthritis of the ankle joint.
