Arthroscopic debridement: effective treatment for impingement after total ankle arthroplasty.


Journal Article

Total ankle arthroplasty has been gaining significant popularity for the treatment of ankle arthritis. Subsequent rates of revision surgery secondary to symptomatic bony impingement have been reported in 6-45 % of cases. Arthroscopic debridement of bony impingement following total ankle has been recently reported as an effective therapy. An arthroscopic technique has been recently published by one of the senior authors. In this paper, we expand this technique and retrospectively review our experience with arthroscopic debridement of twenty ankles in twenty patients with symptomatic bony impingement following total ankle arthroplasty.
