N.Novgorod, Russia

Over the ten-year period (1992-2002) 301 patients underwent lower limb amputation at the Department of Purulent Surgery. In 25 patients, the cause of major amputation was acute arterial insufficiency. The patients were distributed in two groups: the first group patients (n=19) underwent secondary amputation and the second group patients (n=6) were provided major amputation, without attempts at restoration of the main blood flow. On secondary amputation the results appeared worse than on primary amputation.

KEY WORDS: acute arterial insufficiency, lower limb amputation.
