The Ankle Evolutive System (AES) TAR is a further development of the Buechel-Pappas-type prosthesis. This design has a modular stem and allows hemi-replacement of the medial tibiotalar and talofibular joints.1 This prosthesis type has been widely used in England and France 2,3 and has also been introduced in Norway.4   While some studies show promising functional results, this prosthesis has experienced significant problems relating to osteolysis and has been withdrawn from the market.17
