OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this article is to review the basic design features of secondgeneration total ankle arthroplasty components and to illustrate the normal and abnormal postoperative imaging features associated with such devices. The usefulness of CT in postoperative evaluation will be highlighted. CONCLUSION. Postoperative evaluation of the total ankle arthroplasty necessitates a familiarity with the various designs currently in use. Radiography serves as an integral component in the postoperative evaluation of such devices, with CT offering further characterization of radiographic abnormalities.
