Since its introduction in 2009, more than 150 people in the Netherlands have received an osseointegration prosthesis following leg amputation. Serious complications such as septic or aseptic loosening and breakage of the implant are rare. In this article we highlight the results so far, the indications and contra-indications, our first experiences with patients who have undergone amputation due to vascular disease, and the future of osseointegration treatment in the Netherlands.
This article was published in the following journal.

The volume of a prosthesis user's residual limb changes during the day and may affect the fit of the prosthesis. These changes must be managed by the user to prevent discomfort, skin breakdown, and fa...
Self-disgust is an emotion schema negatively affecting people's body image and is triggered by bodily imperfections and deviations from the "normal" body envelope. In this study, we explore the idea t...
The direct attachment of the osseointegrated prosthesis to the skeleton avoids the inherent problems of socket suspension. It also permits physiological weight bearing, improved range of motion in the...
The benefits of total transmetatarsal amputation (TMA) over higher level amputation are well known. However, there are no studies evaluating the effects of first or the first two ray sparing transmeta...
During transcatheter aortic valve replacement with a self-expanding prosthesis, prosthesis embolization represents a rare but severe complication. Etiologies of prosthesis embolization include imprope...
Direct Skeletal Fixation of Prosthetic Limbs Following Trans-Femoral Amputation - Study of an Intraosseous Transcutaneous Amputation Prosthesis (ITAPTM).
The purpose of this study is to evaluate a design of prosthesis that is inexpensive and able to fit a multitude of individuals. This may offer an off the shelf item for those that cannot a...
Often prosthesis users abandon their devices due to difficulties in prosthesis control and lack of motivation to train. To properly control a prosthesis, amputation patients must learn how...
The aim of this study is to investigate the Reliability and construct validity of the Turkish version of the Prosthesis donning and doffing questionnaire in transtibial amputees.
Patients with a trans-femoral amputation who experienced problems, complications pain due to the ischial weight bearing and discomfort with conventional socket prosthesis will be proposed ...
The part of a limb or tail following amputation that is proximal to the amputated section.
Organic chemistry methodology that mimics the modular nature of various biosynthetic processes. It uses highly reliable and selective reactions designed to "click" i.e., rapidly join small modular units together in high yield, without offensive byproducts. In combination with COMBINATORIAL CHEMISTRY TECHNIQUES, it is used for the synthesis of new compounds and combinatorial libraries.
A prosthetic appliance for the replacement of areas of the maxilla, mandible, and face, missing as a result of deformity, disease, injury, or surgery. When the prosthesis replaces portions of the mandible only, it is referred to as MANDIBULAR PROSTHESIS.
The plan and delineation of prostheses in general or a specific prosthesis.
Surgical insertion of a prosthesis.
Arthroplasty is a surgical procedure to restore the integrity and function of a joint. A joint can be restored by resurfacing the bones. An artificial joint (called a prosthesis) may also be used. Various types of arthritis may affect the joints. Osteo...
