Mortality in adults with and without diabetes.
Supplementary data including tables and figures: methods for defining time periods, hazard ratios for mortality in diabetes vs no diabetes, mortality differences between adults with and without
Variation in utilization of procedures for treatment of peripheral arterial disease. A look at patient characteristics.
Patient race is associated with differences in the frequency with which angioplasty, bypass surgery, and amputation are performed for peripheral arterial disease, and insurance status isassociated with the likelihood of having amputation.
Do foot examinations reduce the risk of diabetic amputation?
This study failed to demonstrate that foot examinations decrease the risk of amputation in Pima Indians with type 2 diabetes, however, foot examinations detect high-risk conditions for which specific interventions have been shown to be effective in reducing amputation risk.
Trends in Diabetes and Diabetic Complications, 1980–1987
Diabetes surveillance data will be useful in planning, targeting, and evaluating public health efforts designed to prevent and control diabetes and its complications.
Outcomes associated with diabetes‐related amputations in the Netherlands and in the state of California, USA
The incidence, relative risk, in‐hospital mortality and hospital stay of diabetes‐related lower extremity amputations in the state of California and the Netherlands in the year 1991 is compared.
Decreasing Incidence of Major Amputation in Diabetic Patients: a Consequence of a Multidisciplinary Foot Care Team Approach?
A substantial long‐term decreases in the incidence of major amputations was seen as well as a decrease in the total incidence of amputations in diabetic patients, indicating that a multidisciplinary approach plays an important role to reduce and maintain a low incidence of majors.
Limb Amputation and Limb Deficiency: Epidemiology and Recent Trends in the United States
The risk of amputations increased with age for all causes and was highest among blacks having dysvascular amputations, particularly among elderly and minority populations, and warrants further investigation.
Current estimates from the National Health Interview Survey, 1996.
During 1982-96, the prevalence of asthma increased and the rate and duration of hospitalizations decreased, as well as prevalence of chronic conditions and respondent assessed health status.
