/ ankle fusion
Is this a hypothetical question?
Unfortunatly the question is not hypothetical for me (climbin accident some years ago).
Could you describe in breaf (or give some links to read) what are pros. of prosthetic against ankle arthrodesis? And what are its cons. except cosmetica issues.
Pros- Stop arthritic pain/discomfort in ankle, should help sort alignment problems in knees (excruciating) and hip due to compensating for ankle for 3 years.
Cons- At least a year recovery time and obviously no more ankle movement but Dave Macleod injured his ankle years ago and it hardly moves but he seems to do okay.......
