Managing varus and valgus malalignment after total ankle replacement

Woo Jin Choi, Moses Lee, Jin Woo Lee

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Total ankle replacement (TAR) for a malaligned ankle is a challenging task. However, if a neutral ankle with plantigrade foot is restored simultaneously with TAR, satisfactory outcomes could be obtained. Proper ligament balancing and additional procedures for accompanied deformities are the essences of the operation. Therefore, the surgeon must understand relevant structures for deformities and the algorithmic approach to address them.
