TYPES OF AMPUTATIONS

A transfemoral amputation, commonly referred to as an Above Knee (AK) amputation is accomplished by cutting directly through the femur bone of the upper thigh.

The primary prosthetic concern with this type of amputation is that the patient is required to control and manage artificial joints (knee & ankle). Also, weight bearing on the residual limb typically causes pain so the socket design must accommodate for this.

The knee disarticulation is an amputation performed between bone surfaces, rather than by cutting directly through bone.

With this amputation, the residual limb generally can tolerate some weight bearing, providing a long mechanical lever controlled by strong muscles. By retaining a full-length femur, the thigh muscles tend to be stronger, because they are released at their distal attachments, rather than bisected in the muscle belly.

A below-knee amputation, commonly referred to as a BK or a BKA, is surgically accomplished by cutting through the tibia and fibula of the lower leg.

A large portion of BK amputations is due to peripheral vascular disease and poor circulation of the lower extremity. Although retaining the knee joint improves overall function and ability, muscle contractures of the knee and hip can inhibit recovery and physical therapy.

A partial foot amputation is often a result of advanced vascular disease, secondary to diabetes.

A partial foot is characterized as an amputation occurring at the fore, mid or hind foot, not including the disarticulation of the ankle-foot, which is specified as a Syme’s. PFA’s are historically known to have a significant failure rate and various complications, including ulcerations, skin breakdown, contracture and proximal amputations.
