Abstract

Bilateral resection of the proximal femur, an orthopaedic procedure advocated in selected cases of infected hip joints, can be useful in the treatment of extensive pressure sores in paraplegics. It is especially indicated in those cases where a total thigh flap is considered with the advantage of saving the limb, and by shortening the leg providing more skin and soft tissue for closure of the pressure sores.
