Abstract: The authors point out the indications for lengthening of short amputation stumps. Referring to their own experience they discuss the problems and pitfalls related to this surgical procedure. Sufficient soft tissue coverage is the most important factor for a good outcome whereas limitation of adjacent joint function may have a detrimental effect on the clinical result.
