Intraosseous Transcutaneous Amputation Prosthesis (ITAP) is a prosthesis used in cases of limb amputation to allow the attachment of an exoprosthesis that replaces the lost limb. The implant integrates with the bone using a substance called hydroxyapatite and a special coating allows the skin surrounding the implant to adhere to the surface of the metal.
