PMID: 31996033.


The presence of an interface between the tibial component and the polyethylene insert (PI) in mobile-bearing total ankle arthroplasty (TAA) may allow the talus to adapt its axial position according to the patient's anatomy. However, little is known about differences of the axial talar rotation between patients following mobile-bearing TAA. Therefore, the aim of this study was to assess the relative axial rotation between the talar and tibial component intraoperatively and after a minimum follow-up of 3 years following mobile-bearing TAA.
