Integra® Salto Talaris® Total Ankle
The Integra® Salto Talaris® Anatomic Ankle is a new generation ankle replacement that mimics the anatomy and flexion/extension movement of the natural ankle joint, and is an alternative to traditional ankle fusion.
Advancements in orthopaedic technology continue to revolutionize surgical options. Today’s surgical instruments and implants make orthopaedic surgery more precise and more effective than ever before.
One such advancement can now be seen in the Salto Talaris™, which has been modeled after the human anatomy and is positioned to redefine the classic approach to ankle arthroplasty.
The innovative Salto Talaris now provides surgeons with the ability to reproduce the natural flexion/extension axis of the ankle1 with an anatomic design. The Salto Talaris implant design and instrumentation is founded on the Salto mobile-bearing ankle prosthesis, which has been in clinical use since 1997 with a 93% survivorship at 6.4 year mean follow up2,3 and an 85% survivorship at 8.9 year mean follow up4.
The Integra® Salto Talaris® provides accuracy and reproducibility with the Precision Instrumentation that has evolved to allow a fixed-bearing implant design and represents the philosophy “Less is Sometimes More”.
