Short summary
Chronic bone infections often present with major bone and soft tissue loss which can be difficult to manage. In this study, we treated the most complex infections using surgery which reconstructed all of the tissues in one operation. We showed that this was a safe approach with very good outcomes. All of the bones healed and 96.5 % of patients were infection-free at final follow-up. This type of surgery requires close cooperation of a multidisciplinary team with expertise in major infections.
