Diabetes Care. 2004 Jun;27(6):1286-93Diabetes Care. 2004 Jun;27(6):1286-93 OBJECTIVE: compare risk of all-cause and cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality in people with a lower-extremity amputation (LEA) attributable to diabetes and people without an LEA. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: study of CVD and its risk factors in 13 American-Indian communities. LEA was ascertained at baseline by direct examination of the legs and feet. Mortality surveillance is complete through 2000. RESULTS: 2,108 participants with diabetes 134 participants (6.4%) had an LEA. Abnormal ankle-brachial index (53%), albuminuria (87%),

Diabetes Duration Diabetic participants without LEA- 11.9 years Toe amputation -18.6years Below-the-knee amputations -21.1 years Diabetic subjects with LEA - 19.8 years During 8.7 (+/-2.9) years of follow-up 102 of the participants with LEA (76%) died from all causes 35 (26%) died from CVD 1,974 diabetic participants without LEA at baseline, 604 (31%) died from all causes and 206 (10%) died from CVD. CONCLUSIONS: LEA is a potent predictor of all-cause and CVD mortality in diabetic American Indians.

J Bone Joint Surg Am. 2003 Sep;85-A(9):1667-72J Bone Joint Surg Am. 2003 Sep;85-A(9):1667-72METHODS: Ninety-seven adult patients with diabetes mellitus who underwent Syme ankle disarticulation because of a neuropathic foot with an infection or gangrene, or both, during an eleven-year period were studied retrospectively RESULTS: Eighty-two patients (84.5%) achieved wound-healing. At a minimum follow-up of two years, all but two patients were able to walk with a prosthesis. Thirty of the ninety-seven patients died at an average of 57.1 months following surgery. CONCLUSIONS:. This function-sparing amputation can be successfully performed with a reasonable risk. Patients managed with a Syme ankle disarticulation appeared to remain able to walk better and to survive longer than similar patients who had a transtibial amputation and served as historical controls.
