Abstract

Distal tibial resection during total ankle arthroplasty can be time consuming and presents a technical challenge. We recommend the use of a femoral distractor to assist with this specific part of the operation. We describe the technique below and have now adopted it as a commonplace stage in our ankle replacements.
