Although considerable literature can be found
on the outcome of total ankle replacement (TAR), only a few studies
have reported the results of the fixed-bearing Cadence prosthesis.
This noninventor study reports a consecutive series of 60 Cadence
TAR systems with a mean of 2.9 years’ follow-up, focusing on
clinical and radiographic outcomes and early complications. This
study is the first to assess true postoperative radiographic ankle
prosthesis range of motion (ROM) and to report an unanticipated
serious adverse device effect.
In conclusion, clinical, radiograph ROM,
implant position outcomes, and survival rate at an early-term
follow-up of 2.9 years were similar to those reported in recent
Cadence studies. However, this study reports 5 unanticipated talar
implant fractures and a high rate of posterior radiolucent
