Patient Case History: Ayaka

Ankle distraction for arthritis and AVN of talus

Pre-Op

Patient Surgeon: S. Robert Rozbruch
She sustained a dislocation of the talus and subsequently developed pain and avascular necrosis of the talus.

Post-Op

After ankle distraction, pressure was removed from the talus allowing it to regenerate.

Post-Op

Ankle motion is encouraged while in the frame. Several weeks into the distraction, one can see signs of osteopenia and revascularization of the talus and the absence of collapse.

Follow-Up

Six months after frame removal, there is no collapse of the talus and an improved ankle joint space.
