In brief: Longevity ankles
Good question. It depends on which one you are talking about.
But, in general the data suggest a survivorship of 85-90% at 10 years. We don't have the 15 year data yet.

In brief: We don't know
Older ankle replacements appear to last about 10 years.
Newer generation replacements that came on the market about 2 years ago will hopefully last longer, but we don't have the studies to tell us yet.
