Amputations

  1. 1. AMPUTATIONS A GENERAL OVERVIEW
  2. 2. • INTRODUCTION • INDICATIONS • TYPES • LEVELS OF AMPUTATION • BASIC PRINCIPLES • AFTER TREATMENT • COMPLICATIONS
  3. 3. INTRODUCTION • DEFN-REMOVAL OF THE DISEASED,NON FUNCTIONING,PROTRUDING BODY PART • DERIVED FROM LATIN WORD “AMPUTARE” MEANING ‘CUTTING AROUND’ • INCIDENCE:AGE-50-75 YRS SEX-MALES[75%] LIMBS-LOWER LIMB[85%]
  4. 4. INDICATIONS • POOR CIRCULATION -POVD, DIABETES • INJURY TRAUMA-3/5 STRUCTURES GROSSLY AND IRRIVERSIBLY INJURED FROST BITE,BURNS • INFECTIONS FULMINANT GAS GANGRENE,C/C OSTEOMYELITIS,INFECTED NON UNIONS,C/C INFECTED TROPHIC ULCER
  5. 5. • TUMOURS NOWADAYS DECREASED BECAUSE OF SEVERAL LIMB SALVAGE TECHNIQUES • CONGENITAL ANOMALIES most common indication in children
  6. 6. TYPES • CLOSED AMPUTATIONS FLAPS ARE FASHIONED AND ARE CLOSED PRIMARILY ALONG WITH SURGERY. • OPEN AMPUTATIONS FLAPS ARE NOT CLOSED PRIMARILY LATER REVISED AMPUTATION, REAMPUTATION OR PLASTIC REPAIR 1.GUILLOTINE TECHNIQUE ALL THE TISSUES ARE CUT AT THE SAME LEVEL.IN SEVERE CRUSH INJURIES AND SEVERE INFECTIONS.
  7. 7. • CIRCULAR AMPUTATION WITH FLAPS RETAINED FOR LATER DELAYED SUTURING. OTHER TYPES • REVISION AMPUTATION-for ideal stump • REAMPUTATION
  8. 8. • EARLY AMPUTATION SO GROSS THAT THERE IS NO ALTERNATIVE • INTERMEDIATE AMPUTATION AFTER TEMPORARILY SALVAGING THE LIMBS DEGREE OF DAMAGE JUSTIFY EARLY AMPUTATION • LATE AMPUTATION PAINFUL SYMPTOMATIC MALUNION OR NON UNION
  9. 9. LEVELS OF AMPUTATIONS • HIGHER THE LEVEL OF AMPUTATION GREATER IS THE DIFF TO RESTORE ABILITY • AMPUTATION STUMP SHOULD BE LONG ENOUGH • IF A JOINT IS ARTHRODESED,SECTION AT JOINT LEVEL OR ABOVE • POVD-LEVEL SHOULD BE BELOW THE DISTAL MOST ARTERIAL PULSATION • IN ELDERLY FRAIL-BK AMPUTATION • OTHERWISE KNEE DISARTICULATION
  10. 10. • IN CLINICAL PRACTICE COLOUR AND TEMP OF THE SKIN BEFORE SURGERY APPEARANCE OF FREE CAPILLARY BLEEDING FROM CUT SURFACES ON OPERATION
  11. 11. UPPER LIMB • SHOULDER DISARTICULATION • SHORT ABOVE ELBOW • STANDARD ABOVE ELBOW • LOW ABOVE ELBOW • ELBOW DISARTICULATION • SHORT BELOW ELBOW • MEDIUM BELOW ELBOW • LONG BELOW ELBOW • WRIST DISARTICULATION
  12. 12. LOWER LIMB AMPUTATIONS
  13. 13. BASIC PRINCIPLES • ANAESTHESIA-GA OR SAB • TOURNIQUET CONTRA INDICATED IN ISCHAEMIC LIMB AND ATHEROSCLEROSIS EXSANGUINATION PRIOR TO TOURNIQUET APPLICATION-CONTRA INDICATED IN INFECTED LIMBS AND MALIGNANCIES • SKIN FLAPS-GOOD COVERAGE,MOBILE,ADEQUATE LENGTH
  14. 14. • MUSCLES SECTIONED 5 CM DISTAL TO BONY SECTION 1.MYODESIS-SUTURING TO BONE (CI-ISCHAEMIC LIMB) 2.MYOPLASTY-OPPOSING MUSCLES ARE SUTURED ADVANTAGES- • SHAPE OF THE STUMP GOOD
  15. 15. • INSULATE CUT NERVE ENDINGS • MUSCLES ORIGINATING PROXIMALLY PROVIDE GOOD LEVERAGE • PHANTOM PAIN MAY BE PREVENTED • PREVENT RETRACTION &PAINFUL MUSCLE CONTRACTION
  16. 16. • BLOOD VESSELS DOUBLE LIGATION AND CUT • NERVES PULLED AND CUT SO THAT IT RETRACTS INTO THE STUMP • BONES PERIOSTEAL STRIPPING MINIMISED • DRAIN 48-72 HRS
  17. 17. AFTER PROGRAMME • DRESSINGS 1.RIGID DRESSING-POP CAST DECREASED STUMP EDEMA,EARLY HEALING,LESS POST OP PAIN,TEMPORARY PROSTHETIC FITTING 2.SOFT DRESSING-SOFT BANDAGES AND ELASTOCREPE BANDAGES
  18. 18. REHABILITATION • BEGIN ASAP • GOALS –REDUCE EDEMA, INCREASE STRENGTH, PREVENT CONTRACTURES, MAXIMISE FUNCTIONAL INDEPENDENCE. • BALANCE & COORDINATION ACTIVITIES FOR GAIT TRAINING. • WALKING AIDS • ALSO VOCATIONAL TRAINING, PAIN MNGMT, PSYCHO EDUCATION.
  19. 19. COMPLICATIONS • HAEMATOMA • INFECTIONS • NECROSIS • CONTRACTURES • PAINFUL NEUROMAS • PHANTOM LIMB PREVENTED BY TREATMENT OF NERVES AT THE SURGERY,MYOPLASTIC PROCEDURES AND PROPER STUMP BANDAGING AND STUMP EXERCISES.
  20. 20. STUMP • IDEAL LENGTH • IDEAL SHAPE • MUSCULAR • GOOD POWER OF MUSCLES • NO FIXED DEFORMITY • FULL AND FREE MOVTS OF JOINT ABOVE • INFN FREE • NON ADHERENT INCISION SCAR • ABSENCE OF NEUROMA
  21. 21. CAN BE ACHIEVED BY • STUMP DRAINAGE • STUMP SPLINTING • STUMP BANDAGING • STUMP EXERCISES EARLY • STUMP HYGEINE
  22. 22. SYME’S AMPUTATION ANKLE DISARTICULATION,REMOVAL OF MALLEOLI AND ANCHORING HEEL PAD TO THE WEIGHT BEARING AREA
  23. 23. • TWO POINTS 1.75 CM BELOW LAT MALLEOLUS AND 2.5 CM BELOW MED MALLEOLUS ARE JOINED INFRONT OF THE ANKLE AND ALSO VERTICALLY ACROSS THE HEEL PAD
  24. 24. • ANT INCISION DEEPENED-TALUS AND CALCANEUM REMOVED LEAVING ALL SOFT TISSUE IN THE FLAP • MEDIAL AND LATERAL MALLEOLI ALONG WITH A THIN SLICE OF TIBIA REMOVED • DON’T TRIM ‘’DOG EARS’’ • ADV-PATIENT CAN WALK WITHOUT A PROSTHESIS
  25. 25. LIS FRANCS AMPUTATION • AMPUTATION THROUGH MIDDLE OF THE FOOT • SEVERE EQUINUS DEFORMITY FRICTION IN ANTERO POSTERIOR PRT OF STUMP
  26. 26. CHOPARTS AMPUTATION • AMPUTATION THROUGH MID TARSAL JOINT • SUBTALAR FUSION AND ELONGATON OF TENDO ACHILLES • DISCARDED BCOZ OF SAME REASON
  27. 27. PIGROFF’S AMPUTATION • ANT PART OF CALCANEUM IS CUT ACROSS AND RAW BONE IS FIXED TO THE RAW UNDERSURFACE OF TIBIA • CALCANEAL TUBEROSITY -WEIGHT BEARING AREA
  28. 28. BOYD’S AMPUTATION • TALUS IS EXCISED • CALCANEUM IS ADVANCED AND ATTACHED TO THE RAW UNDERSURFACE OF TIBIA • STABLE LOAD BEARING SURFACE
  29. 29. THANK YOU
