The article examines the results of total ankle arthroplasty and factors that may affect the interpretation of these results. It mentions that the efficacy outcomes, patient satisfaction, and implant survivorship are favorable despite the weak evidence in outcome measures for total ankle arthroplasty. It suggests that surgeons should improve their operating techniques and should apply the advancements in implant design to enhance implant survivorship and decreased the need for reoperation.
