Prostheses, Lower Limb, Total

Definition : Lower limb prostheses designed for partial functional (e.g., rotation, flexion) replacement of a completely missing limb (i.e., the femur and part of the pelvis removed above the hip articulation). These prostheses typically consist of external or partially implantable devices with socket, foot, ankle, knee, and tubular components resembling the leg and thigh; the hip, knee, and ankle components include mechanisms that can provide rotational and flexion movements and locking positions to the components distal to them. Total lower limb prostheses can be anchored directly to the socket lamination plate. They are available in a great variety of configurations and sizes and are used in patients who suffered amputations due to illness (e.g., cancer) or traumatic accidents or, less frequently, in patients who have congenital abnormalities.
