Abstract Failed total ankle replacement is a complex problem that should only be treated by experienced foot and ankle surgeons. Significant bone loss can preclude revision total ankle replacement and obligate revision though a complex tibio-talo-calcaneal arthrodesis. A systematic review of the world literature reveals a nonunion rate of 24.2\%. A weighted mean of modified American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society Ankle and Hindfoot Scale demonstrated fair patient outcomes of 58.1 points on an 86-point scale (67.6 points on a 100-point scale). Complications were observed in 38 of 62 (62.3\%) patients reviewed, with the most common complication being nonunion. Copyright © 2013 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
