Ankle arthroplasty initially had limited success however the newer generations of total ankle replacement have shown good medium term results. Among the various reasons for this change include a better overall understanding of ankle biomechanics; lessons learnt from hip and knee arthroplasty and improved ankle implant designs that offer better mobility. In this work we describe methodology of designing a patient specific implant for total ankle replacement and virtual testing new implants using finite element simulation.
Indeed a very precious piece of information. I didn't even know such a kind of disease exists. I'd love to read more on treatment and prognosis part.
