from Orthopedics Today
Results showed most intermediate-term reoperations after ankle open reduction and internal fixation were due to isolated implant removal. Daniel Pincus, M.D., and colleagues investigated intermediate-term reoperation rates following ankle open reduction and internal fixation among 45,444 patients. Reasons for reoperation included implant removal and isolation, repeat ORIF, irrigation and debridement for infection, or amputation.
