Metal-reinforced Cement Augmentation for Complex Talar Subsidence in Failed Total Ankle Arthroplasty

Abstract: There are limited options for failed total ankle arthroplasty (TAA) with major talar bone loss and component subsidence. Surgical options for this condition include revision arthroplasty, salvage arthrodesis, or amputation. Revision arthroplasty generally has been considered in situations of loose components with minimal bone loss or use of expensive custom-fabricated prosthetic components with elongated stems.
