Wenngleich die Anzahl an Majoramputationen bundesweit rucklaufig ist, finden weiterhin mehr als 57.000 amputationschirurgische Eingriffe statt. Auch aufgrund hoher prothetischer Versorgungskosten resultieren daher weiterhin eine Vielzahl sozialgerichtlicher Auseinandersetzungen, in denen medizinische Sachverstandigengutachten angefordert werden. Unter Kenntnis der juristischen Normen kann der Gutachtenauftrag erfullt werden. Der Gutachter beginnt mit der Auswertung der Patientenakte und der stre...

Abstract Background In subjects with Chopart amputation the foot lever is clearly diminished. Usually high or low profile prostheses are routinely utilized to re-establish the lost forefoot lever. Research question The aim of this study was to investigate to what extent the proposed prostheses were able to replace the forefoot lever in chopart-amputees. Methods An instrumented 3D gait analysis, including plantar and socket pressure measurements, was performed in thirteen subjects with Chopart am...

Objective. To date there is only limited knowledge about the wearing time of orthoses. Ankle-foot orthoses (AFOs) have not been studied with this research question. Additional influences of the orthotic design as well as weekdays and the weekend are also unknown. Design. Monocentric, clinically prospective intervention study. Patients. Inclusion of 10 patients with bilateral spastic cerebral palsy. Methods. Equipment of all subjects with a dynamic ankle-foot orthosis (DAFO) and modular shank sup...

Abstract Background Treatment of cerebral palsy includes an interdisciplinary concept and in more severe cases the well-established multi-level surgery (MLS). Different kinds of orthoses are typically part of postoperative treatment but there is a lack of knowledge about their additional benefit. Research question Do ankle foot orthoses lead to an additional, measurable improvement of gait after MLS? Methods 20 children with bilateral spastic cerebral palsy (9 retrospective, 11 in a postoperativ...

Background Deterioration of gait in adolescent and adult patients with cerebral palsy can be associated with multiple factors. Multilevel surgery (MLS) is one option in adults with cerebral palsy to improve gait function with encouraging short-term results. It is a question whether these improvements are maintained over time.

ABSTRACT Background: The center edge-angle of Wiberg became one of the main tools to evaluate the lateral coverage of the femoral head in patient from 4 to 75 years. One limitation is the difficulty to define a reliable and accurate center of the femoral head in younger patients. With the improvement of conservative and surgical techniques in the treatment of DDH children are increasingly younger than 4 years at the time of treatment. Thus, it is necessary to have a reliable method to help decis...

Abstract Background Individuals with trans-tibial amputation show a greater peak prosthetic ankle power (push- off) when using energy storing and returning (ESAR) prosthetic feet as compared to solid-ankle cushion-heel feet. ESAR feet further contribute to the users’ body support and thus limit prosthetic ankle motion. To improve ankle motion, articulating prosthetic feet have been introduced. However, articulating feet may diminish push-off. Research question Does a novel prosthetic foot, with ...
