PMID:  21720599     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
There are previous case reports in the literature that describe total knee and total hip arthroplasty (THA) in below-knee amputees, but we could find no case reports on above-knee amputees (AKAs) who have severe osteoarthritis of the hip. We present a case involving an AKA who developed severe osteoarthritis of the ipsilateral hip. Out patient underwent THA with a satisfactory postoperative outcome. Technical considerations for AKAs undergoing THA are also reviewed.
