Re: Ankle Joint Replacement

At this time I am not aware of any. I had heard that there were clinical trials being carried out, but I do not know anything else.

About 25 years or so ago ankle implants were being used and they did not stand the test of time. The ankle is a very complex joint with motion in 3 planes and it is proving difficult to make an artificial joint.
