  • amputees
  • The incidence of post-injury PE in this large cohort of combat amputees is significantly higher than previously described and increased as the level of lower extremity amputation increased. (sages.org)
  • Additionally, amputations performed above the zone of injury, particularly for transfemoral amputees ("high -femoral"), would leave them with fewer prosthetic options, which also necessitates an approach focusing on more long-term outcomes ( 1 ). (amegroups.com)

  • Chris P. Kassaris, DPM, a podiatrist at Associated Podiatrists of Greenwich and member of the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA), suggests that individuals suffering from diabetes may significantly reduce their risk of amputations by simply discussing their condition with a podiatrist.

  • procedure
  • We have taken a more in-depth approach to traumatic amputations, which would allow, over a long-term, more of a functional return, utilizing an approach of expectant wound care and delayed reconstruction based on the patient's clinical condition and presentation, with osteomyoplastic amputation as a primary procedure ( Figure 1 ).

  • To code a diagnosis of this type, you must use one of the two child codes of S28.2 that describes the diagnosis 'traumatic amputation of breast' in more detail. (icd.codes)
  • different
  • Poisson regression modeling was used to compare the risks of non-traumatic LEAs during different calendar periods of follow-up, with adjustment both for gender and attained age at follow-up. (diabetesjournals.org)
