Description: We performed 52 cemented ankle arthroplasties for painful osteoarthritis (OA) (25) or rheumatoid arthritis (RA) (27) using an ankle prosthesis with a near-anatomical design.
We assessed the patients radiologically and clinically for up to 14 years using an ankle scoring system. The preoperative median scores were 29 for the OA group and 25 for the RA group and at ten years were 93.5 and 83, respectively. Six ankles in the OA group and five in the RA group required revision or arthrodesis.
Survivorship analysis of the two groups showed no significant differences with 72.7% survival for the OA group and 75.5% for the RA group at 14 years.
