Postoperative evaluation of the total ankle arthroplasty.
OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this article is to review the basic design features of second-generation total ankle arthroplasty components and to illustrate the normal and abnormal postoperative imaging features associated with such devices. The usefulness of CT in postoperative evaluation will be highlighted. CONCLUSION: Postoperative evaluation of the total ankle arthroplasty necessitates a familiarity with the various designs currently in use. Radiography serves as an integral component in the postoperative evaluation of such devices, with CT offering further characterization of radiographic abnormalities.
