Abstract

Pain following an ankle arthrodesis continues to be a challenging clinical problem. Recent reports on semiconstrained two-component ankle implants have demonstrated the feasibility of reversing a problematic ankle fusion and converting it to a total ankle arthroplasty. However, the failure rate is high. The objective of the present prospective study was to evaluate the intermediate-term outcome associated with the use of an unconstrained three-component ankle implant after taking down an ankle arthrodesis.
