Total Talus Replacement

Joint Event on 3rd European Conference on Surgery, Plastic Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery
March 25-26, 2019 | Budapest, Hungary

James K DeOrio

Duke University, United States of America

Keynote: J Univer Surg


Previously, the only treatment for avascular necrosis of the talus was tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis. Now, with the advent of 3 D printing an exact cobalt chrome replica of a patient’s talus can be created and used to replace the damaged bone. This can be used to replace avascular tali from trauma and steroids or collapsed tali secondary to total ankle replacement. A series of 13 patients with total tali, their results and examples of such use will be presented.
