The Bologna-Oxford total ankle replacement: A mid-term follow-up study
The Bone & Joint Journal, 06/08/2012
Bianchi A et al. – The authors used the American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) score to assess the clinical results. Standardised radiographs taken at the time of final follow–up were analysed by two observers. The overall survival was 91.9% at a mean follow–up of 42.5 months. Tibial radiolucencies < 2 mm in width were seen around 16 total ankle replacement. Talar radiolucencies < 2 mm were seen around four total ankle replacement. A total of 47 patients were very satisfied or satisfied with the outcome. Five patients required revision for functional limitation or continuing pain.
