The criteria for selecting patients for an osseointegration procedure are:
Lower extremity amputation (supra or infracondylar).
Complications after using conventional socket exoprosthesis.
Contraindication for use of conventional socket exoprosthesis.
Good quality femoral bone to ensure anchorage of the intramedullary stem.
Motivated patients for osseointegration.
Patients without contraindicating factors: smoker, radiotherapy, poorly controlled diabetic, vascular insufficiency, non-compliant patients...
Does the cause of your amputation limit the possibility of performing an osseointegration procedure?
In the experience of the Australian Osseointegration Group, the main cause of amputation of his patient cut is trauma; the second cause is infections; and the third is cancer, as long as you have not received radiation therapy at the amputation site.
For relative and absolute contraindications, refer to the instructions for use.
