The patient can resume his/her daily activities without pain after a period of rehabilitation, and it does not debilitate the patient like the fusion operations, it allows them to walk without limping and without pain.
Why is the Ankle Arthroplasty performed?
Fracture, Dislocation of ankle Joint
Bone & Joint Infection
Ankle pain interfering in the daily activities
Procedure of Ankle Replacement
Incision is made on the front, after that the lower end of the leg bone (tibia) is cut-off to accommodate the upper piece of the implant.
The upper part of the bone present in the foot named as talus is also shaved off if required, so that the lower portion of the implant can be fitted properly.
A plastic spacer is also placed between the two implants and the whole unit is tested for proper movement.
Bone cement is applied for proper fixation of the implants after ensuring the smooth movement of the ankle joint.
Incision is then closed after the successful application of the implants
Question 1.How is the ankle replacement better than any other options like ankle fusion surgery (Arthrodesis)?
Answer. Ankle fusion provides improvement in pain but it stops the movement of the whole joint as the bones are fused, whereas, Ankle Replacement provides improvement in pain as well as a fully functional moving ankle Joint.
