    above-knee amputation (AKA). 指的是「膝上截肢術」;相對的就是膝下截肢術 below-knee amputation (BKA)

    底下附上一些關於AKA的相關資料,如果需要的話可以參考看看,先附上一些醫學名詞的解釋,其他部分可以利用奇摩迷你筆來翻譯唷:

    PS..因閱讀並加註名詞翻譯,故回覆晚了點,Sorry!

    Amputation - Above Knee

    ● What is it?

    There is not enough blood getting down your leg to keep it alive. The lack of blood causes severe pain and allows serious infection to take hold. The only choice is to take off the damaged part. This must be done high enough to get proper healing of the stump. In your case it means an amputation through the thigh.

    ● The Operation

    You will probably have a general anaesthetic (全身麻醉), and will be asleep for the whole operation. Sometimes patients are numbed from the waist down with an injection in the back. In this case you will be awake but you will not feel any pain from the waist down. A cut is made so that after removing the diseased part, you end up with a rounded stump made of healthy skin. You should plan to be in the hospital for up to six weeks to cover any delay in healing of the wound. You may well be out before this.

    ● Any Alternatives

    An alternative is to amputate lower down, such as through the knee, or at the mid-shin level. But the lower the level, the higher the risk of poor healing, more operations, and a longer stay in hospital. A direct operation on the arteries will not help at this stage. Laser treatment and X-ray guided stretching of the arteries will not work for you. Overall, your best plan is an above-knee amputation.

    因字數限制,待續...

    對啊!沒有前後文比對,很容易出錯的。

    AKA我乍看之下會以為是

    Alcoholic ketoacisosis呢(酒精性酮酸中毒)

    骨科或復健科嗎?

    最好有前後文

    否則翻出來的東西差很多
