Abstract

Revision ankle arthroplasty offers joint salvage for failing ankle arthroplasty patients. Careful preoperative planning is critical to the success of revision procedures. Addressing the cause of what led to the failure of the existing implant is critical to the success of revision surgery. A revision prosthesis ought to have the capacity to bypass areas of poor bone stock. Although revision surgery is accompanied by more complications than primary arthroplasty, early results have shown this to be a viable intervention.
