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.
Introduction. End-stage ankle osteoarthritis is a debilitating condition. Traditionally, ankle arthrodesis (AA) has been the surgical intervention of choice but the emergence of total ankle replacement (TAR) has challenged this concept. This systematic review aims to address whether TAR or AA is optimal in terms of functional outcomes. Methods. We conducted a systematic review according to PRISMA checklist using the online databases Medline and EMBASE after January 1, 2005. Participants must be skeletally mature and suffering from ankle arthrosis of any cause. The intervention had to be an uncemented TAR comprising two or three modular components. The comparative group could include any type of ankle arthrodesis, either open or arthroscopic, using any implant for fixation. The study must have reported at least one functional outcome measure.

Traditionally, ankle arthrodesis (AA) has been the surgical intervention of choice but the emergence of total ankle replacement (TAR) has challenged this concept. This systematic review aims to address whether TAR or AA is optimal in terms of functional outcomes. Methods. We conducted a systematic review according to PRISMA checklist using the online databases Medline and EMBASE after January 1, 2005. Participants must be skeletally mature and suffering from ankle arthrosis of any cause. The intervention had to be an uncemented TAR comprising two or three modular components. The comparative group could include any type of ankle arthrodesis, either open or arthroscopic, using any implant for fixation. The study must have reported at least one functional outcome measure. Results. Of the four studies included, two reported some significant improvement in functional outcome in favour of TAR. The complication rate was higher in ...
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:. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Preoperative planning and surgical technique. T2 - How do i balance my ankle?. AU - Choi, Woo Jin. AU - Kim, Bom Soo. AU - Lee, Jin Woo. PY - 2012/3/1. Y1 - 2012/3/1. 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 ...

The foot and ankle team of the Bone and Joint Institute at Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center is at the forefront of ankle repair with its use of the novel lateral approach to total ankle replacement. In 2015, clinicians performed seven procedures using the lateral approach implant; in 2016, that number doubled to 14.. This implant has several unique features, explains Michael C. Aynardi, MD, foot and ankle assistant fellowship director and assistant professor, Department of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation. First, the lateral ankle replacement implant is one of few implants on the market today that consists of highly cross-linked polyethylene. In addition, the implant is curved, allowing for greater rotational stability compared to more widely used anterior-approach implants. Lastly, an external guidance frame allows for significant deformity correction during surgery.. Advantages to the lateral approach, according to Dr. Aynardi, include:. ...
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 ...
Results TAA utilization rate increased significant from 1998 to 2010: 0.13 to 0.84 per 100,000 overall, 0.14 to 0.88 per 100,000 in females and from 0.11 to 0.81 per 100,000 in males (p,0.0001 for each comparison for time-trends). Compared to the 1998-2000, those undergoing TAA in 2009-10: were older (41% fewer patients ,50 years, p,0.0001); less likely to have RA as the underlying diagnosis (55% fewer patients, p=0.0001); more likely to have Deyo-Charlson index of two or more (197% more, p=0.0010); and had a shorter length of stay at 2.5 days (17% reduction, p,0.0001).

Are Our Expectations Bigger than the Results We Achieve? A Comparative Study Analyzing Potential Advantages of Ankle Arthroplasty Over Arthrodesis. A recent study has concluded that patients who undergo total ankle arthroplasty (TAR) experience only minor functional improvements compared to those treated with ankle arthrodesis (AAD). The study involved 101 patients who underwent TAR and 40 who were treated with screw arthrodeses whose gaits and outcomes were analyzed and assessed during a follow-up exam. The study found that patients who were treated with TAR experienced significant improvements in pain compared to patients who underwent AAD, although patients in the TAR group experienced limited functional gains. Both procedures resulted in significant asymmetry in gait, reduced range of motion compared to normal, and improvements in outcomes as assessed by the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) hindfoot score and the Foot and Ankle Outcome Score (FAOS) questionnaire. Finally, ...
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: The method of choice for the treatment of severe ankle arthritis is either arthrodesis or joint arthroplasty. Each has its advantages and disadvantages. Arthrodesis is the definitive therapy for severe ankle destruction and instability. Joint arthroplasty has an advantage in maintaining ankle mobility. However, its range of indications and its reliability and durability are more limited. The aim of this study is to present our experience with the AES prosthesis and draw attention to some drawbacks of this surgical treatment.. MATERIAL: From September 2003 till June 2008, 51 AES ankle replacements were carried out in 51 patients (33 women and 18 men). Their average age at the time of surgery was 53.8 years. The youngest patient was 23 and the oldest was 88 years old. The indication for surgery was rheumatoid arthritis in 10, primary arthritis in six and post-traumatic ankle arthritis in 35 patients.. METHODS: The patients were evaluated in 2008. The follow-up ranged from 4 ...

Clinical success of total ankle arthroplasty depends heavily on the available information on the morphology of the bones, often obtained from measurements on planar radiographs. The current study aimed to evaluate the intra-rater, inter-rater and inter-session reliability and the validity of radiograph-based measurements of ankle morphology, and to quantify the effects of examiner experience on these measurements. Twenty-four fresh frozen ankle specimens were CT scanned, data of which were used to reconstruct 3D volumetric bone models for synthesizing 2D radiographs. Two orthopaedic surgeons with different levels of clinical experience identified twenty landmarks five times on each of the synthesized sagittal and coronal radiographs and repeated the test on a subsequent day within 5 days. The landmarks were used to calculate fourteen morphological parameters. The two-way mixed-effects (ICC3,1), two-way random-effects (ICC2,k) and two-way random-effects (ICC3,k) models were used, respectively, to assess

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 ...

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 ...
