Abstract

Patient’s over health was unchanged following stage I procedure, 8/17/2013, 123 days post surgery.

The patient had been followed closely since the time of the stage I procedure.  The patient was 65 years of age at the time of the Stage II procedure, 12/18/2013.  Her wounds at the residual limb had completely healed without any problems by 14 days after the Stage I surgery.  Her pain medication requirement was completely resolved by day 21 after the Stage I surgery.  She had worn a stump shrinking compressive stalking for the majority of the time leading up to the Stage II procedure; the patient reported that the pressure on the residual limb was comforting.  The scar was tender over the lateral aspect of the residual limb with a positive Tinel’s Sign [1] and no palpable mass or swelling.

A planning full length standing radiograph of both limbs on a long image cassette was obtained (see figure 1).  All imaging studies showed the femoral implant positioned as it had been on the day of the Stage I procedure with progressive evidence of boney in-growth as demonstrated by the plain film images.
