Algorithmic Approach to Total Ankle Arthroplasty; Foot and Ankle Surgeons address Varus and Valgus Deformity of Ankle
Ankle arthritis can stem from different causes, yet the condition is disabling to patients and surgical intervention from foot and ankle surgeons provides technical challenges.
According to surgeons, “There are two main surgical pathways for the treatment of end stage ankle arthritis including ankle arthrodesis (AA) and total ankle arthroplasty (TAA).” Total ankle replacements have become increasingly popular for patients with end-stage ankle arthritis, and they are becoming more so recommended for patients with severe varus and valgus coronal plane deformity.
In an effort to assist clinicians in improving clinical outcomes, Shasta Ortho Foot & Ankle Surgeons created a report of twelve cases to demonstrate their “algorithmic approach to total ankle arthroplasty in patients with deformity of the foot and ankle.”
The Redding orthopedics team is contributing a growing number of studies to the foot & ankle surgical community.
