Periprosthetic fractures are fractures in the bone surrounding an implant. It may occur with implants associated with a hip, knee, shoulder, or elbow joint replacement. It is a major complication that most often requires surgical intervention.
Complex fractures occur when bones break into several small pieces and the surrounding tissue is severely damaged. They are characterized by intense pain, trauma and possible displacement of the bones and adjacent tissues.
Limb salvage surgery, also called limb-sparing surgery, is a surgical procedure that involves debridement- removal of the injured bone and surrounding tissues and reconstructing the healthy tissues into a functional limb.
Amputation is the surgical removal of a part of the body as a result of a traumatic injury or disease conditions such as diabetes or peripheral vascular disease (PAD).
