Oklahoma Indians with NIDDM (n=1012) underwent a baneline examination in 1972-1980.
The incidence of and risk factors for first lower-extremity amputation were entimated.
The mortality rates of amputees using data from 875 patients who had no previous history of amputation and who underwent follow-up examination between 1987 and 1991 are presented.
The mean age of the 875 patients was 51.6±10.8 yr, and the mean duration of diabetes was 6.6±6.1 yr.
After a mean follow-up time of 9.9±4.3 yr, the incidence rate of first LEA among diabetic Oklahoma Indians was 18.0/1000 person-yr.
The incidence rate wan two times higher in men than in women.
In both sexes, significant risk factors (P<0.05) were retinopathy and duration of diabetes.
