This post market outcome study will look at the therapeutic results of Tornier's FDA 510(k) cleared Salto Talaris Anatomic ankle prosthesis. The study population will consist of patients who will undergo an ankle arthroplasty procedure with a Salto Talaris ankle implant. An analysis will be conducted of the results, complications and revisions of this prosthesis based on the etiology for which the ankle arthroplasty was performed.
