Computed Tomographic Evaluation of Joint Geometry in Patients With End-Stage Ankle Osteoarthritis.


BACKGROUND Deformation of the talus and the distal tibia can be frequently observed during ankle joint osteoarthritis (OA). The aim of this study was to objectify these morphologic changes. We hypothesized that a flattening of the talus and a broadening of the distal tibia surface occurs in end-stage OA of the ankle joint. METHODS Twenty-seven computed… (More)
