Background: Mobile-bearing ankle replacements have become popular outside of the United States over the past two decades. The goal of the present study was to perform a prospective evaluation of the safety and efficacy of a mobile-bearing prosthesis to treat end stage ankle arthritis. We report the results of three separate cohorts of patients: a group of Scandanavian Total Ankle Replacement (STAR) patients and a control group of ankle fusion patients (the Pivotal Study Groups) and another… Expand
Prospective Randomized Trial Comparing Mobile-Bearing and Fixed-Bearing Total Ankle Replacement
TLDR
This prospective, randomized controlled trial compared patient satisfaction, functional outcomes, and radiographic results of the mobile-bearing STAR and the fixed-bearing Salto-Talaris in the treatment of end-stage ankle arthritis found that patient-reported and clinical outcomes were favorable for both designs and that there was no significant difference in clinical improvement between the 2 implants. Expand
Scandinavian Total Ankle Replacement: 15-Year Follow-up
TLDR
A small cohort demonstrated STAR ankles with retention at 9 years were highly likely to survive to 15 years, and patients continued to have significant improvement in pain relief and minimal decrease in function. Expand
Intermediate-term Experience With the STAR Total Ankle in the United States
TLDR
This cohort of patients with true intermediate follow-up after TAA with the STAR prosthesis had acceptable implant survival, maintenance of improved patient-reported outcome scores, and low major complication rates. Expand
Early Prospective Results of the Salto-Talaris™ Total Ankle Prosthesis
TLDR
Early clinical results indicate that the Salto-Talaris fixed-bearing TAA system can provide significant improvement in pain, quality of life, and standard functional measures in patients suffering from end-stage ankle arthritis. Expand
Intermediate to Long-Term Outcomes of Total Ankle Replacement with the Scandinavian Total Ankle Replacement (STAR).
TLDR
Intermediate patient-reported outcomes were good after ankle arthroplasty with the STAR prosthesis performed by experienced surgeons, and long-term outcomes demonstrated a 12% rate of metal component revision and 18% rates of polyethylene bearing failure. Expand
Comparison of Treatment Outcomes of Arthrodesis and Two Generations of Ankle Replacement Implants
TLDR
The average improvement in the MFA and SF-36 PF scores was better after TAR than after arthrodesis, particularly when the TAR had been done with later-generation implants, and Younger patients had greater functional improvements than older patients. Expand
Early prospective clinical results of a modern fixed-bearing total ankle arthroplasty.
TLDR
Early clinical results indicate that the Salto Talaris fixed-bearing total ankle arthroplasty system can provide significant improvement in pain, quality of life, and standard functional measures in patients with end-stage ankle arthritis. Expand
Living With Both a Total Ankle Replacement and an Ankle Fusion: A Qualitative Study From the Patients’ Perspective
TLDR
It is found that each ankle reconstruction was generally perceived to have different characteristics, advantages, and disadvantages, which can help clinicians better counsel patients on expectations after TAR and ankle fusion, and improve patient-reported outcome measures by better capturing meaningful outcomes for patients. Expand
Comparison of Total Ankle Replacement and Ankle Arthrodesis During the Recovery Period
TLDR
Patient pain and function during the first 6 months following surgery is an important consideration for those contemplating both ankle arthrodesis and replacement as options. Expand
Comparison of Practice Patterns in Total Ankle Replacement and Ankle Fusion in the United States
TLDR
In the population studied, the performance of total ankle replacement increased 57% from 2004 to 2009 and was performed equally in male and female patients when compared to ankle fusion, which was more often performed in males and was unchanged with time. Expand

A randomised, controlled trial of two mobile-bearing total ankle replacements.
TLDR
The results of a randomised, prospective study of 200 ankle replacements carried out at a single centre to compare the Buechel-Pappas (BP) and the Scandinavian Total Ankle Replacement (STAR) implant support previous studies which suggested that total ankle replacement should be undertaken with extreme caution in the presence of marked varus or valgus deformity. Expand
Total ankle replacement. Early experiences with STAR prosthesis.
TLDR
There is a steep initial learning curve and use of TAR should be restricted to foot and ankle surgeons, but early results show high levels of patient satisfaction, and patients are encouraged to continue with total ankle arthroplasty. Expand
The Agility total ankle arthroplasty. Seven to sixteen-year follow-up.
TLDR
Arthrodesis of the tibiofibular syndesmosis impacts the radiographic and clinical outcomes with the Agility total ankle replacement, and it is found that this procedure is a viable and durable option for the treatment of ankle arthritis in selected patients. Expand
Total ankle replacement: medium-term results in 200 Scandinavian total ankle replacements.
TLDR
Anterior subluxation of the talus was corrected and, in most instances, the anatomical alignment was restored by total ankle replacement in osteoarthritic ankles using the Scandinavian Total Ankle Replacement. Expand
Comparison of reoperation rates following ankle arthrodesis and total ankle arthroplasty.
TLDR
It is confirmed that, compared with ankle fusion, ankle replacement is associated with a higher risk of complications but also potential advantages in terms of a decreased risk of the patient requiring subtalar joint fusion. Expand
Uncemented STAR Total Ankle Prostheses: Three to Eight-Year Follow-up of Fifty-one Consecutive Ankles
TLDR
Total ankle replacement may be a realistic alternative to arthrodesis, provided that the components are correctly positioned and are of the correct size, and the risks of loosening and failure are still higher than are such risks after total hip or total knee replacement. Expand
Total ankle replacement revisited.
TLDR
The clinical results from total ankle replacement and ankle arthrodesis are reviewed; indications, contraindications, design features, postoperative rehabilitation, and initial results for the major current total ankle designs are discussed; and concepts for future total ankle development are presented. Expand
Takedown of ankle fusion and conversion to total ankle replacement.
TLDR
For patients with a definable source of pain and who have not had previous malleolar resection, conversion of a failed ankles arthrodesis to total ankle arthroplasty may be a viable alternative to amputation. Expand
Scandinavian total ankle replacement: a 3.7-year average followup of 65 patients.
TLDR
The early experience with the S.T.A.R. ankle implant is encouraging, although it has encountered more complications and potential problems than previously reported. Expand
Complications and failure after total ankle arthroplasty.
TLDR
A relatively high rate of reoperation after total ankle arthroplasty with this second-generation device is noted; however, the functional outcome of this procedure is uncertain. Expand
