ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study of a 26-year-old man with no relevant medical history run over by a bus in the U.S. He was pronounced with complete degloving of the left forefoot with the osseous structures. The patient underwent surgery for a Pirogoff amputation and a transfixation frame was applied to stabilize the calcaneus-tibial plateau interface and the soft tissue. The article discusses Pirogoff amputation for rapid recovery and return of functional mobility.
