Causes

Peripheral vascular disease is much more frequently the cause of amputation than are traumatic injuries. Poor foot care, impaired circulation, and peripheral neuropathy lead to serious ulcerations, which may be undetected until it is too late to salvage the foot or even the entire limb. Congenital deformity, severe burns, and crushing injuries that render a limb permanently unsightly, painful, or nonfunctional may be treated with surgical amputation. Tumors (usually malignant) and chronic osteomyelitis that does not respond to other treatment may also necessitate amputation.
