Hip fracture fixation in a
patient with below-knee amputation presents a surgical dilemma: a case report
Hip fracture fixation surgery in
patients with below-knee amputations poses a challenging problem to the surgeon
in terms of obtaining traction for reduction of the fracture. The absence of
the foot and part of the leg in these patients makes positioning on the
fracture table difficult. We highlight this difficult problem and suggest
techniques to overcome it.
A 73-year-old man with bilateral
below-knee amputations presented with a history of fall. Radiographs revealed
an inter-trochanteric fracture of the femur. A dynamic hip screw fixation was
planned for the fracture but the dilemma was on how to position the patient on
the fracture table for the surgery. Special attention was needed in positioning
the patient and in surgical fixation of the fracture.
Hip fracture fixation in patients
with below-knee amputations poses a special problem in positioning for fracture
reduction and fixation. In this case report, we share our experience and
suggest techniques to use when encountering this difficult problem.
