(PharmaNewsWire.Com, May 19, 2017 ) In recent years, there has been a resurgence of interest in total ankle replacement (TAR). The success of third-generation implants in relieving arthritic pain and restoring range of motion has poised TAR as an effective substitute to arthrodesis (joint fusion). Whereas, extensive bone resection has plagued previous generations of devices, current products aim to minimize resection of the tibial and talar bone to promote implant stability. Also, manufactures are advancing preoperative evaluation techniques to achieve better alignment. Although ankle trauma is not as common as other joints like the knee and hip, there is an increased utilization TAR based on advanced implant designs and positive study results from long term viability trials. This has resulted in major insurers revising coverage policies to support patient access to TAR. As implant costs can comprise the largest portion of operating room supply cost in an orthopaedic procedure, hospitals are taking steps to enlist the help of physicians in cost-cutting measures.
