Abstract

Management of ankle arthritis can be difficult for the physician and patient. Conservative options are limited but should be exhausted in an effort to prolong ankle arthrodesis. Custom braces can provide an effective means to alleviate pain, improve quality of life, and prolong ankle arthrodesis in patients affected by advanced ankle arthritis with or without deformity.
