Total ankle replacement: why, when and how? (3/23)

Total ankle replacement (TAR) was first attempted in the 1970s, but poor results led to its being considered inferior to ankle fusion until the late 1980s and early 1990s. By that time, newer designs which more closely replicated the natural anatomy of the ankle, showed improved clinical outcomes. Currently, even though controversy still exists about the effectiveness of TAR compared to ankle fusion, TAR has shown promising mid-term results and should no longer be considered an experimental procedure. Factors related to improved TAR outcomes include: 1) better patient selection, 2) more precise knowledge and replication of ankle biomechanics, 3) the introduction of less-constrained designs with reduced bone resection and no need for cementation, and 4) greater awareness of soft-tissue balance and component alignment. When TAR is performed, a thorough knowledge of ankle anatomy, pathologic anatomy and biomechanics is needed along with a careful pre-operative plan. These are fundamental in obtaining durable and predictable outcomes. The aim of this paper is to outline these aspects through a literature review.  (+info)

Total ankle arthroplasty. (5/23)

Although ankle arthrodesis has been considered the gold standard for treatment of symptomatic end stage arthritis, recent improvements in arthroplasty designs and instrumentation have led to a resurgence in interest in ankle arthroplasty. While first generation arthroplasty systems had high failure rates due to cemented techniques or highly constrained designs, newer generations of ankle replacements have introduced more anatomic and pressfit techniques. Early results have been promising, with improved functional outcomes versus ankle arthrodesis. However, complication rates are still substantial, and the procedure should be restricted to properly indicated patients. Long-term follow-up studies are necessary, but total ankle arthroplasty has become a viable option for surgical treatment of ankle arthritis.  (+info)

Meta-analysis of unexpected findings in routine histopathology during total joint replacement. (6/23)

BACKGROUND: Routine histopathological analysis of bone extracted during total joint replacement is controversial. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the utility of routine histopathological analysis in total joint replacement. METHODS: We calculated the risk for discrepant diagnosis between the pre- and postoperative histopathological results by performing a meta-analysis of 11 studies (including our data). We also calculated the risk for significant discrepancies. RESULTS: The discrepant diagnoses analysis showed a random effect of 3% discrepancies (95% confidence interval 1.2-3.7%). Funnel plot indicates a publication bias; consequently, the conclusions from this analysis should be interpreted with caution. Regarding the significant discrepancy in diagnosis, we performed a meta-analysis of nine studies. Fixed-effects analysis of all the studies resulted in 0.16% significant discrepancies (95% CI 0.02-0.30%) with no heterogeneity (Q = 3.93, degrees of freedom = 9, P = 0.14, /2 = 49.2%), and appropriate fixed-effects models. CONCLUSIONS: We recommend no further routine histological examination, reserving this tool for cases with a controversial primary diagnosis and unexpected findings during the operation.  (+info)

Ankle joint replacement, also called total ankle arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure performed to relieve pain and immobility due to ankle arthritis. Orthopedic surgeons at Jordan-Young Institute in Virginia Beach and Hampton Roads, VA perform ankle joint replacement surgery.
Total ankle replacement, also known as total ankle arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure that foot and ankle orthopaedic surgeons use to treat ankle arthritis.
For patients with damaged ankles, ankle prosthesis may provide a reasonable option. Ankle replacement is a new procedure designed for elderly patients with low impact activity demands.. In this procedure, a badly damaged ankle is completely replaced with an artificial implant (prosthesis). Because the damaged ankle is completely removed, total ankle replacement can resolve a wide variety of serious ankle problems.. Although not as common as a total hip or knee joint replacement, advances in implant design have made ankle replacement a feasible option for many people.. Ankle replacement offers patients better mobility and movement compared to fusion surgery. By allowing motion at the ankle joint, less stress is transferred to the adjacent joints, which means lessened chances of arthritis in those adjacent joints.. Ankle replacement is most often recommended for patients with:. ...

N2 - Ligament balancing during total ankle arthroplasty is an important step in optimizing the mechanical balance of the ankle joint. Soft-tissue contractures that result from varus or valgus coronal plane deformity can pose a difficult problem, and the surgeon should have a standard procedure for managing such situations in the operating room. Balance may be assessed intraoperatively with the use of spacer blocks, laminar spreaders, and tensioning devices as well as by placement of trial components. Techniques used to balance the varus or valgus ankle during primary total ankle arthroplasty include osteophyte resection, soft-tissue release, and bone resection. Mediolateral ligament balancing is crucial for long-term success and patient satisfaction.. AB - Ligament balancing during total ankle arthroplasty is an ...

A total ankle replacement system, novel surgical method for total ankle replacement, and novel surgical tools for performing the surgical method are described. The total ankle replacement system includes the calcaneus in fixation of a lower prosthesis body, thereby significantly increasing the amount of bone available for fixation of the lower prosthesis body and allowing the lower prosthesis body to be anchored with screws. The total ankle replacement system further includes a long tibial stem which can also be anchored into the tibia with, for example, screws, nails, anchors, or some other means of attachment. The novel surgical arthroscopic method allows introduction of ankle prostheses into the ankle joint through an exposure in the tibial tubercle. Various novel surgical instruments, such as a telescoping articulating reamer and a talo-calcaneal jig, which facilitate the novel surgical method, are also described.
The TARVA (Total Ankle Replacement versus Arthrodesis) Investigators meeting was held prior to the BOFAS AGM. TARVA stands for Total Ankle Replacement Versus Arthrodesis. The TARVA trial is a clinical trial for patients with ankle arthritis that are considering surgery. The main surgical treatments for end-stage ankle arthritis are ankle arthrodesis or total ankle replacement (TAR). Approximately 3,000 patients undergo ankle arthrodesis or TAR in the NHS each year. Both treatments are available on the NHS, and both have been reported to have good results. Some studies suggest that TAR restores a more natural walking pattern than ankle fusion but other studies have suggested that the ...

Almost everyone has heard of total hip replacement and total knee replacement. But fewer people are familiar with total ankle replacement (also called total ankle arthroplasty).. Although it looks like a simple hinge joint, the ankle actually involves much more complex movement, absorbing forces up to five times body weight. Many conditions, such as severe osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis and post-traumatic arthritis, can cause degeneration of the ankle joint, leading to severe pain, swelling and immobility.. Until recently, the only choice to repair a degenerated ankle was to fuse the shin bone (tibia) to the top foot bone (talus), a procedure called ankle arthrodesis. This eliminated pain but left the ankle completely immobile.. When total ankle replacement (or TAR, for short) was first performed in the 1970s, the two-part prosthesis implanted was not very successful. Nowadays, ankle prostheses are made of three pieces of plastic and metal. While not perfect, they relieve pain and allow ...

It is a particular problem for the feet when people are overweight, simply because there are so many joints in each foot. The additional weight contributes to the deterioration of cartilage and the development of bone spurs.. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a major crippling disorder and perhaps the most serious form of arthritis. It is a complex, chronic inflammatory system of diseases, often affecting more than a dozen smaller joints during the course of the disease, frequently in a symmetrical pattern-both ankles, or the index fingers of both hands, for example. It is often accompanied by signs and symptoms-lengthy morning stiffness, fatigue, and weight loss-and it may affect various systems of the body, such as the eyes, lungs, heart, and nervous system. Women are three or four times more likely than men to suffer RA.. RA has a much more acute onset than osteoarthritis. It is characterized by alternating periods of remission, during which symptoms disappear, and exacerbation, marked by the ...

Rand Paul (left) has declared, from the start, that hes the tea party candidate, and yet [Bill] Kristols Weekly Standard has been viscerally hostile to the tea partiers from the very beginning, because anti-populism is a key plank in the neoconservative platform, unless - of course - its anti-Muslim populism. The very phrase big government conservatism, which the tea partiers justifiably detest, was invented by the Weekly Standard, along with the fiscally imprudent variety of national greatness conservatism Kristol and Co. have been peddling for years. Why, if hes riding the wave of tea party activism, is Rand forging an alliance with their worst enemies? Hes way ahead in the polls. He doesnt need Bill Kristol and the Weekly Standard, he doesnt need the neocons - who arent known to exist in any great numbers in Kentucky - and he doesnt need AIPAC either. In short, there was no good reason for him to run after and appease his fathers nemeses. So why did he do it? You can ask him, ...

In the setting of a total ankle replacement, these authors present a novel technique of ligament repair in a patient with a significant medial deltoid insufficiency associated with stage IV posterior tibial tendon dysfunction.
Ankle replacement, or ankle arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace the damaged articular surfaces of the human ankle joint with prosthetic components. This procedure is becoming the treatment of choice for patients requiring arthroplasty, replacing the conventional use of arthrodesis, i.e. fusion of the bones. The restoration of range of motion is the key feature in favor of ankle replacement with respect to arthrodesis. However, clinical evidence of the superiority of the former has only been demonstrated for particular isolated implant designs. Since the early 1970s, the disadvantages of ankle arthrodesis and the excellent results attained by arthroplasty at other human joints have encouraged numerous prosthesis designs also for the ankle. In the following decade, the disappointing results of long-term follow-up clinical studies of the pioneering designs has left ankle arthrodesis as the surgical treatment of choice for these patients. More modern designs have produced better ...

They were evaluated at pre-arranged intervals, and the data were submitted to statistical analysis. The surgery led to a significant improvement in ankle ...
The total ankle prosthesis comprises a tibial member and a talar member each having complementary bearing surfaces which are constructed and arranged in such a manner that the normal axial rotation of an ankle about the axis of a tibia during motion of the talus relative to the tibia during flexion and extension is reproduced by the prosthesis.
Osteoarthritis that occurs as a result of a poorly aligned ankle is not uncommon. In most cases (70 to 80 per cent), trauma to the ankle is the original cause of the problem.. If conservative care doesnt help, then surgery is often advised. The two most commonly used operations include ankle joint fusion or total ankle replacement (TAR). But there are some patients who could benefit from surgery to realign the joint instead.. The surgeon may be able to balance the uneven joint space. The operation is called realignment surgery. Too much tension on the tendons can be lessened. Angles between bones in the ankle can be changed. And the bone can be lengthened or shortened.. Shear forces can be reduced and shifted to be equal across the joint. Any deformity in the midfoot, forefoot, or hindfoot may be reduced. If realignment surgery is not successful, then a fusion or TAR can still be done.. The realignment approach has made it possible for some patients to continue participating in sports ...

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a potentially efficacious treatment for ankle osteoarthritis (OA), but its use has not been examined in high-quality studies. Ankle OA is more common than hip or knee OA in the young active population.1 The incidence of symptomatic ankle OA is estimated to be 3.4% in the general adult population.1 Patients with ankle OA have a quality of life and physical functioning comparable with hip OA, end-stage kidney disease or congestive heart failure.2 These relatively young (predominantly female) patients have an increased risk for decreased work participation and family care. The available surgical intervention (arthrodesis) is associated with significant functional limitations. In contrast to hip and knee OA, where joint replacement is an excellent surgical alternative for severe cases, there is a clear need for effective non-surgical interventions in ankle OA.. PRP is defined as plasma containing a concentration of at least 1 000 000 platelets/μL.3 Growth factors are ...

After years of taking pain relief and the increasing immobility of my ankle I decided it was time to get medical advice. Mr Farndon on inspection of my ankle advised that it was possible to perform ankle replacement surgery and not totally immobilise the ankle, as I thought would be the situation. The ankle replacement surgery in Harrogate has been a total success and I now have pain free mobility of about 90 percent in my ankle and regularly walk 5 to 10 miles without a thought. The ankle replacement has changed my life, I attend a gym again and also do Pilates weekly. The follow up support from my surgeon has been great and I now only have annual check ups. I would recommend anyone who was in my situation to visit Mr Farndon. His advice, surgery, and aftercare has totally change my life giving me back the ability to walk, drive, and enjoy my retirement pain free, which was becoming increasingly difficult, due to my arthritic ankle. ...

Definition : Implantable prostheses designed for total replacement of the ankle joint. These prostheses may consist of either a combination of a tibial component and talus component prostheses or, more frequently, of advanced designs that include three or more components. Several total ankle joint prostheses are available with different shapes and technologies. A semiconstrained three-component mobile-bearing prosthesis requires resurfacing of the superior ankle, and a semiconstrained cemented prosthesis requires the conversion of the three-bone ankle joint into a two-bone ankle joint by fusing the fibrous union at the distal ends of the tibia and fibula (i.e., tibiofibularis syndesmosis). Total ankle joint prostheses are used in patients who suffer from osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, as well as after trauma..

After heart attacks, two types of drugs are commonly prescribed: antiplatelet treatment and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) for depression. A retrospective analysis of patients discharged after acute myocardial infarction over 10 years found that compared with aspirin alone, the combined use of an SSRI and antiplatelet therapy resulted in a higher risk of bleeding. The combination of two antiplatelet agents plus SSRI also increased the risk of bleeding compared with dual antiplatelet therapy alone (CMAJ 2011;183:1835-43, doi:10.1503/cmaj.100912).
