Abstract
OBJECTIVE: We analysed the variation in the outcome of infrainguinal bypass surgery between departments in a register for clinical audit to see if variation in case-mix influenced the results. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study was a retrospective analysis of 764 infrainguinal bypass operations performed from 1988 to 1990 at six Swedish surgical departments. Results were assessed at 30 days and at 1 year postoperatively. RESULTS: There was a significant variation (p

Abstract
Information was retrieved from the national patient register (Landspatientregisteret), that contains information on all admissions to Danish hospitals 1977-1993. The number of admissions during which a diagnosis of occlusive arterial disease (OAD) of the lower extremities was made and an amputation performed increased from 1290 in 1977 to a maximum of 1609 in 1983 (p

Abstract
All major amputations of the lower limb due to occlusive arterial disease were studied prospectively and consecutively during one year in the 5 hospitals in Malmöhus county, Sweden. The patients were followed for 6 months after the primary amputation of which 136 were through the tibia, 6 through the knee and 35 through the femur. One hundred and seventy-seven patients (92 men and 85 women) were included; 49% were 80 years or older and 40% were diabetic. At 6 months, 85 of the surviving 109 patients had healed stumps, 10 were not healed and 14 had been revised or reamputated. Half the survivors used a prosthesis daily. There was no significant difference in healing related to sex, age, diabetes or the level of amputation, but diabetics were more often bilateral amputees. The mortality at 6 months was 38% and at 4 years 72%.

Abstract
Thirty-two patients with 41 injured arteries were operated upon during a period of 12 years. Three quarters were men, and the median age was 33 years. Accompanying lesions were seen in 87.5% of the patients. Nearly half the lesions were related to blunt trauma. Occupational accidents constituted the largest group. The diagnosis was made on clinical grounds in most cases. The median time lapse from trauma to operation was 5 hours. The principles of treatment were those that are generally accepted. No patients died, the amputation rate was 12.5%. Median follow-up was 8 months. A successful arterial reconstruction contributed to a good functional result. Postreconstruction thrombosis of arteries were found to occur within the first hours or days after reconstruction. Late thrombosis was rare and the overall long-time patency was 61.4%. Patency of repair of upper limb small vessels was 54.5%.

Abstract
Untreated chronic critical leg ischaemia (CLI) usually leads to an amputation or death of a patient. Surgical and endovascular interventions may improve arterial flow. Long infrainguinal reconstruction may be the most useful method for preventing amputations. The value of different reconstruction methods was assessed by their impact on amputation incidence.
A nationwide 2-year analysis of the incidence of major amputations and reconstructions for CLI was done in Finland (population 5.1 million). Incidences were compared in hospital regions with more than 150 000 inhabitants.
The overall amputation incidence was 216 per million inhabitants per year. The corresponding incidence of arterial reconstructions was 203 per million inhabitants per year. There were large variations in the incidence of amputations and reconstructions; 20-fold differences in infrapopliteal surgical reconstructions and 30-fold differences in endovascular procedures were found. There was a correlation between a high incidence of infrapopliteal surgical reconstructions and a low incidence of amputations. This correlation was found for below-knee amputations only.
These results suggest that long surgical reconstructions improving perfusion directly to the ischaemic tissue can improve leg salvage.

Abstract
In June 1988 a Department of Vascular Surgery was established in the County of Viborg, Denmark. In a retrospective study, 314 patients had 337 major amputations within two time periods: 1986-1987, and 1989-1990. The number of patients seen by a vascular surgeon rose significantly from 19% in the first period to 49% in the last period, and the number of amputations was concurrently significantly reduced by 25%. The largest reduction was observed in 1990, probably due to an increase of vascular reconstructions of 43%. Assuming there is a latency between diagnosing "critical leg ischaemia" and amputation, this will further delay the already convincing results showing that vascular surgery does reduce the frequency of amputations. All patients with suspected critical leg ischaemia or threatened by amputation must be seen, or at least conferred with a vascular surgeon.
