Data to analyze the incidence rates of dysvascular major lower extremity amputations (LEA) in Northern Netherlands in 2012–2013 compared to previous cohorts in 1991–1992 and 2003–2004.
Data from cohorts 1991–1992, 2003–2004, and 2012–2013 were analyzed, where the cohorts 1991–1992 and 2003–2004 were available to our department. Twelve hospitals -comprising one academic hospital and eleven hospitals with operational endocrinology and surgery departments- in the Northern three provinces of the Netherlands (i.e., Groningen, Friesland and Drenthe) participated in the current study and the previous cohorts.
Adults (N = 343) with first ever dysvascular LEA at ankle disarticulation or more proximal levels. The median age (interquartile range) was 74.2 years (64.5–81.9), 64% were male and 55% had been diagnosed with diabetes mellitus (DM).
