The study evaluates a novel web-based application for monitoring the postoperative pain in patients undergoing total ankle replacement, from preoperative condition to 30 days follow-up. The indexes provided by the app in terms of percentages of pain areas are compared with that obtained with traditional visual analogue scale. Moreover, the relation between the percentage of pain area and the presence of side effects of the intervention are compared as well.
