Triple arthrodesis following Agility Ankle Replacement

Three years ago I had a TAR with an Agility device. The screws came out at 6 months, and a larger bar and screws were implanted.

Now I have pain again, especially up both sides of the hindfoot and my surgeon says I need a triple arthrodesis.

Should I get another opinion? What rate of success is there with triple arthrodesis following Agility ankle replacement?

age 70, weight 150, height 5'4

Re: Triple arthrodesis following Agility Ankle Replacement

TAR is very new in the states so you may not find a lot of responses (but quite common for a number of years in Germany and Scandinavia). You might want to check the medical literature by searching Medline. Good Luck
