Transcutaneous bone-anchoring prosthesis with knee replacement: A novel treatment for amputees

Khemka, Aditya, Frossard, Laurent, Lord, Sarah, Bosley, Belinda, & Al Muderis, Munjed (2015) Transcutaneous bone-anchoring prosthesis with knee replacement: A novel treatment for amputees. In 6th International Conference Advances in Orthopaedic Osseointegration, 26-27 March 2015, Las Vegas, NV.


Over the last two decades, Transcutaneous Bone-Anchored Prosthesis (TCBAP) has proven to be an effective alternative for prosthetic attachment for amputees, particularly for individuals unable to wear a socket. However, the load transmitted through a typical TCBAP to the residual tibia and knee joint can be unbearable for transtibial amputees with knee arthritis. The aims of this study are (A) to describe the surgical procedure combining TKR with TCBAP for the first time; and (B) to present preliminary data on potential risks and benefits with assessment of clinical and functional outcomes at follow up.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
