Joint-Preserving Surgery of Ankle Osteoarthritis

In the last decades, substantial advances in understanding the ankle joint anatomy and biomechanics as well as the pathogenesis of ankle osteoarthritis (OA) have led to new approaches in the treatment of ankle OA. While joint-wide end-stage ankle OA is typically treated by total ankle arthroplasty or ankle arthrodesis (ie, joint-sacrificing surgeries), asymmetric degenerative ankle OA can be treated by joint-preserving surgery (ie, by osteotomies together with possible osteochondral repair, ligament and tendon reconstructions, and others).
