Poster Abstract

Heterotopic ossification (HO) is excess bone growth in soft tissues, typically juxta-articular and interfascicular, with varying incidence. HO has been well documented in traumatic amputees but less frequently observed in the non-traumatic amputee population. Symptomatic HO usually includes pain during prosthetic use, with management involving prosthetic adjustments for comfort. This atypical case highlights a non-traumatic amputee developing proximal oriented large spur formation that was painful not with ambulation but with doffing of his prosthesis.

Painful Proximal Oriented Large Heterotopic Spur Formation in an Active Adult Non-Traumatic Amputee

Heterotopic ossification (HO) is excess bone growth in soft tissues, typically juxta-articular and interfascicular, with varying incidence. HO has been well documented in traumatic amputees but less frequently observed in the non-traumatic amputee population. Symptomatic HO usually includes pain during prosthetic use, with management involving prosthetic adjustments for comfort. This atypical case highlights a non-traumatic amputee developing proximal oriented large spur formation that was painful not with ambulation but with doffing of his prosthesis.
