Total ankle arthroplasty (TAA) is an effective alternative for treating patients with end-stage ankle degeneration, improving mobility, and providing pain relief. Implant survivorship is constantly improving; however, complications occur. Many causes of pain and dysfunction after total ankle arthroplasty can be diagnosed accurately with clinical examination, laboratory, radiography, and computer tomography. However, when there are no or inconclusive imaging findings, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is highly accurate in identifying and characterizing bone resorption, osteolysis, infection, osseous stress reactions, nondisplaced fractures, polyethylene damage, nerve injuries and neuropathies, as well as tendon and ligament tears. Multiple vendors offer effective, clinically available MRI techniques for metal artifact reduction MRI of total ankle arthroplasty. This article reviews the MRI appearances of common TAA implant systems, clinically available techniques and protocols for metal artifact reduction MRI of TAA implants, and the MRI appearances of a broad spectrum of TAA-related complications.
