Total ankle replacement is a surgical process for replacing damaged bones in the ankle joint. Total ankle replacement is performed by placing a plastic or metal implant on top of the ankle bone (talus) and at the end of the shin bone (tibia). Loss of movement and pain in the ankle are the common symptoms. Bone fracture, arthritis, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis are some of the primary reasons for total ankle replacement. Arthrodesis and total ankle replacement are the two common types of total ankle replacement surgeries. Recovery period for the total ankle replacement surgery is up to three months after the surgery. Some of the risks associated with ankle replacement are ankle weakness, bone damage during surgery, stiffness, nerve damage, allergic reactions to the artificial joint, and blood vessel damage. Growing awareness about these risks associated with the total ankle replacement surgeries are expected to hamper the growth of the global total ankle replacement market.
