Total Ankle Replacement Surgery Complications
A Total Ankle Replacement (TAR) surgery, also known as Total Ankle Arthroplasty (TAA) surgery or ankle implant surgery, can provide much pain relief for those who are suffering from problems caused by trauma or deterioration of the ankle joint, but the TAR surgery does have possible complications. Potential complications seen after surgery include:
- Bone fracture on either side of the total ankle implant
- Nerve and tendon injuries
- Blood vessel injuries
- Bleeding or blood clots
- Wound healing complications
- Failure of ankle implant to heal into the bone
- Severe pain
- Foot amputation
Most of these complications can be prevented when a doctor who is properly trained on these TAR surgeries does the implant procedure with the proper degree of skill and care. When a doctor is negligent in performing the surgery, or when the doctor is not properly trained to do the surgery, the patient is at high risk of suffering from complications and even implant failure.
