Résumé
Still nowadays amputations are frequently performed in our country. In diabetic patients the incidence of an amputation is 25 times higher than in the normal population. All possibilities of revascularisation or limb salvage must be excluded by a multidisciplinary approach before choosing an amputation. Once the decision is taken the good level of amputation and the correct technique have to determined. The goal of this article is to describe which clinical and paraclinical parameters will help the surgeon to choose the best level of amputation, which techniques are to be used for the amputation and to finally give some information about re-education and the fitting of an orthesis or prosthesis.
