Subtalar joint alignment in ankle osteoarthritis

Publication date: Available online 18 October 2017 Source: Foot and Ankle Surgery Author(s): Nicola Krähenbühl, Lena Siegler, Manja Deforth, Lukas Zwicky, Beat Hintermann, Markus Knupp Background Although it has been proposed that in mid-stage ankle osteoarthritis, the subtalar joint can compensate for deformities above the ankle joint, the evidence is weak. We thus investigated subtalar joint alignment in different stages of ankle osteoarthritis using weightbearing computed tomography (CT) scans. Methods The subtalar joint of 88 patients with osteoarthritis of the ankle joint and a control group of 27 healthy volunteers were assessed.
