Abstract Devascularized bone grafts are pieces of dead bone and they simply serve as scaffolds for new bone to grow and fill the gap, taking a long time when they succeed in doing so. In contrast, vascularized grafts being living tissues have short healing time, great vitality and strong infection-resisting capacity. We report here the successful use of vascularized grafts of the lower end of fibula for fusing the ankle in five leprosy patients.
