Publication date: Available online 4 August 2017 Source: Foot and Ankle Surgery Author(s): Federico Giuseppe Usuelli, Cristian Indino, Camilla Maccario, Luigi Manzi, Federico Maria Liuni, Ettore Vulcano Background Total ankle replacement (TAR) represents an alternative to fusion for the treatment of end-stage ankle osteoarthritis. The aim of the present study was to retrospectively assess the frequency of infections between TARs with anterior and lateral transfibular approach at 12-months follow-up. Methods 81 TARs through an anterior approach and 69 TARs through a lateral approach were performed between May 2011 and July 2015.
