This article reviews the indications for fusion in the rheumatoid arthritic patient. It also discusses the principles of arthrodesis in this group of patients and the unique considerations of the perioperative period. Technical considerations are presented relative to the decreased bone stock, bone grafting, and fixation. Finally, special technical procedures are discussed with respect to the more commonly performed arthrodesing operations.
