Hemipelvectomy ; Prosthesis ; Custom-molded seating
We report a case of hemipelvectomy, which was successfully treated with custom-molded supportive seating and a cosmetic prosthesis. A 32-year-old woman with a history of right traumatic hemipelvectomy, 24 years ago, visited our outpatient clinic for proper prosthetic rehabilitation. After injury, she was not able to use functional prostheses because of persistent skin problems of the hemipelvectomy site. She was able to perform all activities of daily living independently, but had to rely on crutch walking and was not able to sit on an even surface for longer periods of time. With the molded supportive seating the patient was able to perform outdoor activities for up to 10 hours. This case shows an approach in amputee rehabilitation, in which the ultimate goal of prosthetic fitting is not independent walking, but the improvement of independence and hence the improvement of quality of life.
