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).
