- 1.1. A program for the rehabilitation of the arteriosclerotic above-knee amputee has been presented.
- 2.2. Under this program 23, or 71 per cent, of a group of 32 patients surviving amputation walked with a prosthesis. In 18 selected patients the mean interval between amputation and walking with a prosthesis was 4.3 weeks. Four patients walked with prosthesis in less than 2.5 weeks postoperatively.
- 3.3. The application of this program, which requires the education of all personnel caring for the patient, can be rewarding in patient satisfaction, in shortened hospital stay, and in a lessened community responsibility for this group of patients.
