Arthritis is a disease causing painful inflammation and stiffness of the joints. A large number of operations on ankle fractures result in posttraumatic osteoarthritis. Sjoerd Stufkens addresses the role of the intra-articular cartilage lesions, the role of the deltoid ligament and the role of the alignment of the hindfoot.
