A Significant Drop in Major Amputation Worldwide: Message from the @OECD @APMA #DiabeticFoot #ActAgainstAmputation

Important work from Carinci, Uccioli and coworkers evaluating 21 nations within the Organization for Economic Cooperation (OECD) showed a massive 30.6% reduction in major amputation between 2000 and 2013 with minor amputations (foot-level) remaining stable. These were for all-cause amputation, but diabetes was equally reduced (29%).
