Amputation at the knee-joint by disarticulation by Thomas Bryant Download PDF EPUB FB2

In patients who are nonambulatory, knee disarticulation is a muscle balanced amputation with very little potential for the late development of hip or knee joint contracture. The residual limb provides an excellent platform for wheelchair sitting, and an efficient lever arm for transfer from bed to chair (Figs 1, 2).

Through-knee amputation is a good option in a patient who already has an above-knee amputation on the other side since it improves balance and stability. Disarticulation of the knee joint is particularly suited to medically high-risk patients because it may be undertaken swiftly with minimal blood loss.

[Knee disarticulation and through-knee amputation]. [Article in German] Baumgartner R(1). Author information: (1)Zumikon bei Zürich, Schweiz. [email protected] OBJECTIVE: A knee disarticulation or a through-knee stump is superior compared to a transfemoral stump.

While there may be differences in socket design and prosthetic knee selection, the treatment of a knee disarticulation and transfemoral amputation and.

The disarticulation of the knee joint is--in contrary to the above-knee level--a fast and tender method for amputation, resulting in a vigorous, complete weightbearing stump. For a transtibial amputation the minimum length is in ( cm) below the knee joint (maximum length up to 6 to 8 in [ to cm]).

Healing rates are favourable, but there is a need for appropriate amputation level selection to prevent reamputations.

To determine the lengthening effect of the knee joint and anchor, we positioned the knee joint in 90[degrees] flexion. In this position, the laser beam was aimed first at the reference point and second at the most prominent part of the knee joint.

As such, it includes both the knee joint and its anchor (Figure 4).
