The total ankle joint prosthesis has been
developed for more than 50 years, and evolved from the first generation
to the third generation at present. In recent years, the improvement of
prosthesis design and prosthetic materials and the application of
patient-specific instruments have made the prosthesis more stable and
more accurate, and the indications for total ankle replacement have been
gradually expanded. The research progress in prosthesis design for
total ankle replacement is reviewed in this paper.
