History of Total Ankle Replacement

Attempts at ankle replacement have existed for at least 50 years. Time has essentially eliminated constrained, cemented, first-generation ankle replacements. Although some two-component, more anatomic, designs are still used with varying success, three-component “mobile bearing” ankle prostheses are winning the race of evolution.
