This study describes the Osseointegration Group of Australia’s Accelerated Protocol two-stage strategy (OGAAP-1) for the osseointegrated reconstruction of amputated limbs.

Patients and Methods

We report clinical outcomes in 50 unilateral trans-femoral amputees with a mean age of 49.4 years (24 to 73), with a minimum one-year follow-up. Outcome measures included the Questionnaire for persons with a Trans-Femoral Amputation, the health assessment questionnaire Short-Form-36 Health Survey, the Amputation Mobility Predictor scores presented as K-levels, 6 Minute Walk Test and timed up and go tests. Adverse events included soft-tissue problems, infection, fractures and failure of the implant.
