Major lower extremity amputation procedures secondary to compromised vascularity demonstrate extremely high rates of infection, wound complication, mortality, and reoperation, resulting in reduced mobility, cardiovascular deconditioning, and muscle weakness, decreasing the probability of future prosthetic fitting. This in turn results in a compromise in quality of life and increased health care expenditures by the Veterans Health Administration. While multiple factors contribute to delayed or fa...
