The Role of Arthroscopy After Total Ankle Replacement.
Alongside advances and trends in foot and ankle surgery, arthroscopy provides a minimally invasive option in exploring and addressing pain after total ankle replacement (TAR). It is not uncommon for patients to develop pain months or even years after TAR implantation for both fixed and mobile-bearing designs. Arthroscopic debridement of gutter pain can provide successful outcomes in the hands of the experienced arthroscopist. Surgeon preference and experience will dictate the threshold for intervention, approach, and tool selection. This article provides a brief look into the background, indications, technique, limitations, and outcomes for arthroscopy after TAR.
