Joint-Preserving Surgery of Asymmetric Ankle Osteoarthritis with Peritalar Instability

A varus or valgus talar tilt that increases under weight-bearing is commonly seen in osteoarthritic ankles. Loss of peritalar stability may be the underlying cause for the talus shifting and rotating on the calcaneonavicular surfaces, as given by applied forces. The instability pattern and the resulting deformity can be assessed and classified using weight-bearing conventional radiographs.
