Abstract

Ankle arthroplasty has previously had a dubious reputation based on the experience with the first-generation two-piece designs. This has given the impression that ankle arthrodesis is the preferable choice in painful and degenerate ankles when conservative treatment has failed. Introducing a sliding meniscus in a prosthetic ankle joint resulted in a better perfor mance* especially by imitating the normal torque and, thereby, decreasing stress at the bone-prosthesis interface.
