I have a question . Last year I took care of a few amputee pt. I am going into my second yr of nursing school. Well what I want to know is with AKA, what happens to the muscle insertion at the knee? Do they have any hip flexion, do muscle contractures happen. BKA is preferred if possible I would suppose. Any input would be great, I have thought about this from time to time.Janice
