Abstract Triple arthrodesis is a powerful corrector of hindfoot deformity related to trauma, rheumatoid arthritis, and long-standing peritalar subluxation with posterior tibial tendon dysfunction. To avoid the common postoperative complications related to triple arthrodesis, one must be meticulous in preoperative evaluation as well as surgical technique. Presented are some tips and tricks to avoid the common complications and provide the patient with a plantigrade, stable foot, as well as some salvage options for triple arthrodesis in a malunited position.
