CASE: A 35-year-old farmer presented with a foot ulcer on his left flail foot because of a sciatic nerve injury of 1-year duration. A gap of 11 cm was observed in the sciatic nerve for which he underwent 2-staged pedicled peroneal nerve grafting and posterior bone block procedure for the ankle. He had S3 grade sensation at 5-year follow-up without any recurrence of ulcer and a stable foot without external support for walking. CONCLUSION: Staged pedicled peroneal nerve grafting with a posterior bone block procedure is a viable solution for very large sciatic nerve defect with predictable results.
