Abstract

This self-directed learning module highlights prosthetic treatment considerations and challenges in children and young adults. It is part of the chapter on acquired limb deficiencies in the Self-Directed Physiatric Education Program for practitioners and trainees in physical medicine and rehabilitation. This article specifically focuses on prosthetic considerations for a child experiencing a mutilating traumatic amputation, examines the rationale for limb salvage versus surgical amputation for malignant bone tumors, discusses the unique management options available for patients undergoing hip disarticulation due to a tumor, and highlights the complications associated with amputations resulting from trauma and malignancies. Overall Article Objective: To summarize prosthetic treatment considerations and challenges in children and young adults.
