Abstract in Portuguese
INTRODUÇÃO: A escala MESS foi um instrumento desenvolvido para auxiliar o cirurgião na decisão entre amputar e preservar o membro inferior gravemente lesado. Neste estudo acompanhamos um grupo de pacientes com fratura exposta dos ossos da perna com MESS >= sete, preditivo para amputação, durante seu tratamento até a sua reabilitação completa. OBJETIVO: O objetivo do estudo foi determinar a relação de sucesso/insucesso funcional nos pacientes com escore MESS >= sete com o membro reconstruído no longo prazo (mínimo de dez anos de seguimento). MÉTODOS: Foram incluídos no estudo, os pacientes com fratura exposta Gustilo IIIB e IIIC dos ossos da perna com critérios de membros inferiores gravemente lesados modificados de Gregory e Bonanni e escore MESS >= sete. Os pacientes foram incluídos no período de 2003-2006. Os pacientes foram avaliados através da Medida de Independência Funcional e escala de incapacidade pela dor. RESULTADOS: Dos 26 pacientes selecionados, foram realizadas amputações em cinco e preservação do membro acometido, após intervenções, em 21 pacientes. Nove pacientes foram reavaliados após mais de 10 anos de seguimento. Destes, sete apresentavam o membro preservado e apenas um teve a reconstrução considerada como falha. Dos pacientes preservados, o paciente com fratura exposta Gustilo IIIC teve a reconstrução considerada falha. As duas amputações também foram consideradas funcionais. CONCLUSÃO: A escala MESS não é um bom instrumento para indicar amputação

Abstract in English
INTRODUCTION: The MESS score was designed as a tool to assist the surgeon in deciding between amputate or preserve the severely injured lower limb. In this study we followed patients with severe open fractures of the leg with MESS >= seven, predictive for amputation during their treatment until their complete rehabilitation. OBJETIVE: The aim of the study was to determine the relative success / failure in patients with functional MESS score >= seven with the reconstructed member. METHODS: We included in the study, patients with open fractures Gustilo IIIB and IIIC of the leg with criteria for seriously injured lower limb modified by Gregory and Bonanni and MESS score >= seven. All patients were included from 2003 to 2006. Patients were evaluated through the Functional Independence Measure and Pain Disability Index. RESULTS: From selected 26 patients, five had below knee amputation and 21 after reconstructive procedures got limb salvage. Nine patients were evaluated after 10 years follow-up. Seven of them have the reconstructed limb, only one of these was considered as functional failure. Of the patients with lower limb reconstruction only Gustilo IIIC open fracture has a non-functional member. The two patients with amputation also have functional results. CONCLUSION: MESS is not a proper instrument to indicate amputation
