Diabetic foot amputations. Part II: Metatarsal amputations

Diabetic foot amputations. Part II: Metatarsal amputations

Journal of Foot Surgery 29(2): 135-140

Part II of this series of articles on diabetic foot amputation represents case studies, along with appropriate metatarsal amputation procedures. Misdiagnosis or delayed treatment of these patients can lead to loss of limb and, in some cases, can be life threatening. Diabetic feet have varying degrees of neurovascular compromise, but this should not result in traditional below-the-knee or above-the-knee amputations.
