ABSTRACT

This article discusses the evaluation, impression, modifications, fabrications and rehabilitation of a patient with bilateral hip disarticulations necessitated by severe decubitus ulcers secondary to a 7th thoracic level (T-7) spinal cord injury. The care of this patient was a challenge due to bilateral amputations at such a high level and the special needs of a patient who has a spinal cord injury.
