This retrospective file review outlines a case study of an 84 year-old man with a transtibial amputation for vascular disease who underwent an ipsilateral total hip replacement (THR). The question being addressed was how surgical techniques, rehabilitation processes and outcomes of joint arthroplasty would need to vary in a case of an ipsilateral dysvascular amputees. The surgery and associated rehabilitation was undertaken for groin pain, falls and reduced mobility due to mechanical osteoarthritis of the hip.

In this article, we present a case report of a 62-year-old patient who previously underwent an above-the-knee amputation for vascular disease and we performed a total hip replacement on him because of hip osteoarthritis. As the only postoperative complication, the patient developed a methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus surgical site infection, which was successfully treated. The surgical technique and the postoperative rehabilitation program are described in detail in an attempt to detect and face the challenges that patients with major lower limb amputations may present.

There are previous case reports in the literature that describe total knee and total hip arthroplasty (THA) in below-knee amputees, but we could find no case reports on above-knee amputees (AKAs) who have severe osteoarthritis of the hip. We present a case involving an AKA who developed severe osteoarthritis of the ipsilateral hip. Out patient underwent THA with a satisfactory postoperative outcome.

Degenerative joint disease is not uncommon in amputees and reaches the orthopedic surgeon when all other conservative methods to manage these patients have failed. Several case reports describing hip and knee arthroplasties in patients with hip and knee joint diseases or fractures with the distal part amputated, either in the contralateral or ipsilateral limb, exist in literature.
This article focuses only on total knee and total hip arthroplasty in amputees who have had severe osteoarthritis of the ipsilateral hip and knee joints.

Degenerative joint disease is not uncommon in patients with lower extremity amputations. These patients are candidates for joint arthroplasty procedures; however, certain modifications may be necessary during the procedure to overcome the challenges presented by the amputation. The authors describe a total hip arthroplasty in a 51-year-old patient 45 years after an ipsilateral through-knee amputation.
