Promising results reported with currently available total ankle arthroplasty designs have led to an increased use of such devices as an alternative to ankle arthrodesis. Despite recent improvements in implant design and surgical technique, complications associated total ankle arthroplasty devices continue to be reported. Postoperative evaluation of total ankle arthroplasties relies on a combination of clinical and radiologic assessment. Familiarity with commonly used current total ankle arthroplasty devices and appropriate postoperative imaging techniques is imperative for effective characterization of the expected postoperative imaging appearances of such devices and facilitating detection of potential postoperative complications.
