Eventually, long-term outcome studies may demonstrate clear superiority of either total ankle arthroplasty (TAA) or arthrodesis in the treatment of end-stage ankle arthritis. But until then, orthopaedic foot and ankle surgeons can turn to this JBJS webinar for an up-to-date analysis of the most relevant published data in the replace-or-fuse decision. And the choice of replacement, increasingly common nowadays, sets the stage for further decision-making, including mobile or fixed bearings.

Author Alastair Younger, FRCSC, will present salient conclusions from his study comparing four-year outcomes with TAA versus arthrodesis. Then Mark Easley, MD, will shed light on the fixed-versus-mobile debate by discussing his two-year follow up of results in patients with different bearing types. After the author presentations, two additional ankle experts, Chris Coetzee, MD and Alexej Barg, MD, will share their perspectives on the data and their own experiences managing end-stage ankle arthritis. The complimentary webinar concludes with a live question-and-answer session between audience members and panelists.
