In patients with asymmetric (varus or valgus) ankle osteoarthritis, realignment surgery is an alternative treatment to fusion or total ankle replacement in selected cases. To determine whether realignment surgery in asymmetric ankle osteoarthritis relieved pain and improved function, we clinically and radiographically followed 35 consecutive patients with posttraumatic ankle osteoarthritis ...

We present a series of 16 patients treated between 1993 and 2006 who had a failed total ankle replacement converted to an arthrodesis using bone grafting with internal fixation. We used tricortical autograft from the iliac crest to preserve the height of the ankle, the malleoli and the subtalar joint. ...

Charcot neuroarthropathy is a serious complication associated with diabetic neuropathy. This complication probably is most serious when the ankle is involved because of the instability and progressive deformity, which often leads to ulceration, osteomyelitis, and amputation. Arthrodesis before the ulcerated lesion appears is considered a limb salvage treatment. One of ...
