FAI December 2017 Podcast: Midterm Outcomes of a Fixed-Bearing Total Ankle Arthroplasty With Deformity Analysis
We present our results with an INBONE I (Wright Medical, Memphis, TN) prosthesis that have a minimum of 4 to 10 years of follow-up and include a preoperative deformity analysis on outcomes.
Patients who underwent INBONE I fixed-bearing total ankle arthroplasty demonstrated significant improvement in outcomes at a mean of 5.9 years. Catastrophic talar component collapse did occur (2.7% of cases), but relatively rarely. The patients with preoperative coronal plane tibiotalar deformity had similar pain relief, function, and need for revision of implant components. Despite the presumed shortcomings of the INBONE I’s design, this implant showed promising results, with or without deformity, at midterm follow-up with survivorship of 90.6%.
