Incidence of Revision after Primary Implantation of the Agility™ Total Ankle Replacement System: A Systematic Review

Abstract: Revision of failed total ankle replacement remains a challenge with limited information available to guide treatment options. I undertook a systematic review of electronic databases and other relevant sources to identify material relating to the incidence of revision after primary implantation of the Agility™ Total Ankle Replacement System. In an effort to procure the highest quality studies available, studies were eligible for inclusion only if they involved patients undergoing primary Agility™ Total Ankle Replacement; had evaluated patients at a mean follow-up of 12 months or longer; included details of the revision performed; and included revision etiologies of aseptic loosening, ballooning osteolysis, cystic changes, malalignment, or instability.
