  1. Cost of prostheses in patients with unilateral transtibial amputation for vascular disease : A population-based follow-up during 8 years of 112 patients.

    Article - En anglais

    We analyzed the cost of prostheses for patients amputated because of vascular disease.

    During 1 year, 112 patients were treated with a primary unilateral transtibial amputation in Malmöhus county, Sweden, which has 527,000 inhabitants.

    During the first 6 months after the amputation, 50% (56/112) of the patients had received a prosthesis.

    At 6 months, 49 patients (7 had died) were examined, 18 had poor and 31 had good prosthetic function.

    Within 1 year, 71 (63%) patients had been fitted with a prosthesis.

    During 8 years after the amputation, they received altogether 137 prostheses and 54 exchange sockets ; 59% of the prostheses and 26% of the sockets were delivered during the first year.

    Each patient received a median of 1 prosthesis and 1 extra socket.

    During the 8-year period, the total cost of prostheses, sockets and maintenance for the 71 patients was USD 228,746, representing a median cost of USD 1,582 per patient.

    The total cost of maintenance of the prostheses during the same period was USD 37,959, representing 20% of the total cost of all the prostheses and sockets.

    There was no statistically significant difference in the costs between patients with good or poor function.
