Filling up segmental defects in the continuity of long bones still poses a great challenge to an orthopaedic surgeon such defects could be either due to resection of segment of diseased bone or due to non-union with segmental loss or may be due to absence of part of bone. Bridging a defect in a long bone, especially weight bearing bone like tibia is difficult technically and union afterwards is indolent. The fibula of the affected side is transplanted to bridge the gap in such a situation to reconstruct a single bone leg, which is also called tibialisation of fibula. This paper reviews the follow up of 4 cases of reconstruction of single bone leg.
