Malreduction of a distal fibular fracture can lead to degenerative changes in the ankle joint. Previous studies have shown that the selective use of various fibular reconstructive osteotomies may halt the progression of degenerative arthritis by restoring the normal tibiotalar contact area and decreasing the stresses on the articular cartilage. In this case report, we achieved alignment with restoration of the talocrural angle and Shenton's line of the ankle using a transfibular osteotomy and an allogeneic fresh-frozen femoral head graft to fill the resultant defect...

BACKGROUND: Ankle arthrodesis has been the traditional surgical treatment for end-stage hindfoot arthritis. However, utilization of total ankle arthroplasty (TAA) is increasing as surgical techniques and implants have substantially improved. The purpose of this study was to compare the U.S. national rates of perioperative (in-hospital) complications between a statistically matched cohort of patients who underwent either an ankle arthrodesis or a TAA. METHODS: Data from the 2002 to 2013 Nationwide Inpatient Sample releases were analyzed...

BACKGROUND: AES mobile-bearing total ankle replacement was developed from the Buechel Pappas model. It was withdrawn in 2009, after identification of a higher than expected complication rate. The purpose of the current study was to analyse clinical outcomes, failures and survival of the initial series of 50 AES published in 2009. METHODS: In this single-centre continuous prospective study (2003-2006), 50 AES prostheses were included. Pre-operative osteoarthritis was mainly post-traumatic (50%) and secondary to instability (36%)...

Total ankle arthroplasty (TAA) and ankle arthrodesis (AA) are complicated surgeries that carry a learning curve with them. Complications are an aspect of all surgeries that must be considered. Surgeons must be prepared to handle these complications. The most important things are early identification and treatment of these complications. Treating complications is a combination of medicines, conservative measures, and most importantly surgical intervention. Recent studies have shown a decrease in complications of TAA and AA over the past 10 years...

Arthroscopic ankle arthrodesis provides an alternative to open techniques. Advancements in arthroscopic techniques and instrumentation have made the procedure easier to perform. Arthroscopic ankle arthrodesis has demonstrated faster rates of union, fewer complications, reduced postoperative pain, and shorter hospital stays. Sound surgical techniques, particularly with regard to joint preparation, are critical for success. Comorbidities such as increased body mass index, history of smoking, malalignment, and posttraumatic arthritis should be considered when contemplating arthroscopic ankle arthrodesis...

First described in 1879, ankle arthrodesis is a procedure that has undergone significant advancements not only in technique but also in technology and fixation. Surgeon preference has often dictated those changes with regard to incisional approaches, fixation methods, and use of bone graft and biologics but one constant has always remained: open ankle arthrodesis is a predictable, time-tested procedure with consistent results when performed in appropriate patients. This article highlights the changes that have occurred since the introduction of this procedure and provides a brief overview of the preferred technique...

Hani M Badahdah, Thomas Zgonis
Ankle arthrodiastasis provides an alternative surgical treatment of the mild to moderate posttraumatic ankle arthritis. Ankle arthrodesis or ankle implant arthroplasty is usually reserved for the end-stage ankle arthritis and after conservative treatment options have been implicated for a long period of time. Ankle joint destructive procedures are often considered for the older and less active population with strict selected surgical criteria and prolonged rehabilitation. In either ankle joint-sparing or ankle destructive procedures, lower extremity deformity correction will need to be addressed before or at the time of index surgery for the overall patient's successful outcome...

BACKGROUND: The treatment for the failure of a first metatarsophalangeal joint (MTP1) prosthesis can be complex. There is no consensus regarding the ideal treatment. One of the main issues is the available bone stock after prosthesis removal. The aim of the study was to report the clinical and radiographic results for MTP1 arthrodesis with autologous calcaneus bone graft (bone-block fusion) as a revision procedure of a previous MTP1 implant failure. METHODS: This study included 12 patients diagnosed with failure of a MTP1 prosthesis...

Calcaneocuboid distraction arthrodesis (CCDA) is regarded as an effective method for reconstructing adult-acquired flatfoot deformity. In the present study, we present our experience with newly developed rigid β-tricalcium phosphate wedges to treat CCDA to better understand the outcomes of this synthetic bone grafting procedure. A total of 13 feet in 13 patients underwent CCDA with synthetic bone grafts. One male (7.69%) and 12 females (92.31%), with a mean age of 65.07 ± 11.83 (range 36 to 77) years, were followed up for a mean duration of 32...

Controversy remains regarding the use of arthroplasty versus arthrodesis in the surgical treatment of late-stage hallux rigidus. The purpose of our retrospective study was to report the long-term follow-up results of the metatarsal head resurfacing implant used for hemiarthroplasty. The patient assessments were conducted using the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) metatarsophalangeal clinical rating system and a satisfaction questionnaire. A total of 59 consecutive implantations were performed from January 2005 to December 2009 at our institution...

BACKGROUND: Arthrodesis is an effective and reliable treatment for end-stage ankle arthritis; however, many patients develop ipsilateral adjacent joint arthritis following surgery. The mechanism that drives adjacent joint arthritis remains uncertain. Cadaveric simulation permits direct investigation of the effects of both arthrodesis and movement strategy on adjacent joints during simulated walking. The objective of this study was to identify the isolated effect of ankle arthrodesis on adjacent joint kinematics during simulated walking...

Jeffrey D Seybold
Malunion remains a common complication after triple arthrodesis, with rates as high as 6% in the reported literature. Careful patient evaluation is critical to determine the location and degree of bony deformity. A stepwise systematic approach to correct hindfoot and midfoot deformity is presented in this article. Few studies have been published to guide foot and ankle surgeons with this difficult clinical scenario, but reports have demonstrated high success rates and low rates of complications after revision triple arthrodesis...

REVIEW

Deltoid ligament reconstruction allows for joint preservation of the ankle in the setting of patients a triple arthrodesis due to a flat foot deformity. Although the increased forces that may occur in the ankle joint after a triple arthrodesis cannot be eliminated, reconstruction of the ligament will delay and may prevent the onset arthritis, allowing the patient to maintain mobility of the ankle joint. The anatomy, surgery, and risks and benefits are discussed.

BACKGROUND: The decision tree for the operative treatment of end-stage ankle arthritis involves either ankle arthrodesis (AA) or total ankle arthroplasty (TAA). Although both have documented success providing diminished pain, improved patient-centered outcomes, and improved objective measures of function, arthroplasty is unique in its ability to preserve motion at the tibiotalar joint. Arthroplasty procedures are normally thought of as a motion-sparing surgery rather than a motion-producing procedure, which may limit its success in patients with stiff ankles...
