Abstract: Femoral amputation is a devastating event. Percutaneous, bone anchored prosthetic systems reduce problems associated with socket suspended prostheses, but the design is inherently vulnerable to infection. The aims of this thesis were to determine the risk of implant-associated infection, bacterial biofilm properties and the functional impact using this implant treatment regime. Definition of implant related osteomyelitis was based on clinical signs, radiography and positive tissue cultures... more
