Title:
Revision Total Knee Arthroplasty in a Patient with Bilateral Below-the-Knee Amputation: A Case Report
Authors:
Williams, M. G.; Phillips, Jonathan R. A.
Abstract:
We report the case of a patient with bilateral below-the-knee amputation who had a periprosthetic fracture around a total knee arthroplasty. The fracture was managed with a revision total knee arthroplasty. We discuss the rationale for revision surgery, the surgical techniques, and the postoperative rehabilitation. Follow-up at one year demonstrated maintenance of the pretrauma functional status.
