Symposium

Medical and Orthopaedic Aspects with Childhood Amputations and Dysmelia – Therapy Plan and Complication Management

Short description

In the context of amputation procedures, among other things for congenital deformities, the focus is also on orthopaedic technology approaches to regulating excessive osseous growth in children with lower limb amputations. Non-surgical treatment methods for patients with reduction defects are presented, including initial results of a study on their quality of life. Participants gain comprehensive insights into the aspects of treatment involving orthopaedic challenges, from childhood to adulthood where the personal perspective of the persons affected is taken into account.
