Description

Summary

The LEAP protocol is a prospective cohort study of dysvascular patients designed to determine whether implementation of a multi-disciplinary lower extremity amputation protocol in the peri-operative period can shorten post-operative length of stay in patients undergoing trans-tibial or trans-femoral amputations. A consecutive sample of patients diagnosed with peripheral vascular disease and/or diabetes requiring major lower extremity amputation will be enrolled in the study and compared to retrospective controls.
