Femoral bifurcation with ipsilateral tibia hemimelia: Early outcome of ablation and prosthetic fitting
Keywords: Early outcome, femoral bifurcation, tibia
AbstractFemoral bifurcation and tibia hemimelia are rare anomalies. Hereby, we present a case report of a 2-year-old boy who first presented in our orthopedic clinic as a 12-day-old neonate, with a grossly deformed right lower limb from a combination of complete tibia hemimelia and ipsilateral femoral bifurcation. Excision of femoral exostosis, knee disarticulation and prosthetic fitting gives satisfactory early outcome.
