Total ankle replacement has become a valuable treatment option for end-stage osteoarthritis. The most recent generation of implants comprises a second interface between the polyethylene insert and the tibial prosthetic component. This may permit a better adaptation of position between the implant components and thereby prevent unphysiological loading of ankle ligaments and reduce polyethylene wear. To date, no available data have evaluated whether the relative position of talar and tibial implant components change over time.
