This article is the first to directly address the incidence, risk factors, and management of periprosthetic fractures after osseointegration.
The objective of this study is to look at success of osseointegration for patients with peripheral vascular disease in comparison to a traditional socket prosthesis and the rate of occurrence of all subsequent complications after a patient receives osseointegration surgery.
The objective of this study is to examine the rate of occurrence and reports on the best management practices of serious complications across a multi-centre review of more than 1000 osseointegration surgeries.
This paper reports a 24-year-old woman with unremitting complex regional pain syndrome type I (CRPS-I) underwent a trans-femoral amputation, then reconstruction with osseointegration surgery.
This is the first 5 year follow up study reporting on the clinical outcomes of diabetic patients receiving an osseointegrated reconstruction.
This article is the first to directly address the outcomes, and management of osseointegration prosthesis following a limb lengthening procedure for individuals unable to use traditional socket prosthesis due to short stump.
Osseointegration is a potential treatment option for transfemoral amputees experiencing socket related problems. Up to this date, there is little data assessing the feasibility and advantages of osseointegration in individuals with transtibial amputations.
