Abstract This article reviews total ankle replacement for rheumatoid ankle arthritis. The benefits of preserving the mobility of the ankle joint for the patient who has rheumatoid arthritis are undisputed. Recent reports have consistently shown that patient satisfaction following ankle replacement is high and prosthetic survival is more than 90\% at five years and in many instances more than 80\% at 10 years. Ankle replacement is contraindicated when there is severe coronal plane deformity.
