Abstract Taking into account numerous individual criteria, the correct indication substantially influences the outcome of patients with end-stage ankle arthritis treated by ankle arthrodesis or total ankle replacement. The purpose of this report is to assist the foot and ankle surgeon or orthopedic surgeon involved in choosing ankle arthrodesis or total ankle replacement in decision-making. Balancing the criteria that are discussed in consideration of the recent relevant literature and evidence available, the surgeon is directed to the correct individual decision.
