    I noticed the the stats on postoperative death after Lower-Limb amputation.

    Though there's a small chance vascular work could be done, It looks amputation is in store for my mother.

    I have my notes from her consult and think they apply now more than ever.

    Are there any basic guidelines, suggestions, or resources that would be worth acting on to reduce the odds of death?

    Also let me know if this is inappropriate for this format, please.

    death via amputation has more to do with comorbid diseases associated with the bad circulatory system
