Anesthesia and Pain Control for Osteointegration Implantation Into the Femur - Stage II Osteointegration Implant (OI) Skin Coupling Procedure
The success of our index case employing the use of the Osseointegration Implant (OI) is largely due to the coordinated efforts of the assembled team of medical professionals including nursing, surgeon and anesthesiologist. The anesthesetic methods and techniques were a central component of each of this patient’s surgeries. This is a report of the anesthetic methods employed in managing this patient’s pain before, during and after the implantation with the novel Longitude™ OI device.
The index patient was well know to the team having undergone multiple prior surgical procedures at our institution. This report will detail the anesthesia provided at the time of the transfemoral amputation, followed by the Stage I implantation of the Longitude™ OI device and finally concluded at the time of the stage II docking through the skin procedure. In each case the patient was offered neuraxial subarachnoid block  and declined.
