Masquelets teknik anvendt efter åben femurfraktur med infektion og osteomyelitis

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review

The treatment of patients with larger bone defects due to infections, trauma or tumours is a challenge in orthopaedic surgery. In 1986 Alain Charles Masquelet introduced a new technique using a two-step procedure, in which cement and bone-graft is used to reconstruct the defect. The Masquelet procedure is an effective alternative to methods formerly used in Denmark, but is still rarely used and unknown by many. In this case report we present a young woman with a large bone defect due to infection after an open femur fracture, who was successfully treated using this method.
