Abstract

Aims: To explore the risk of subsequent ischemic events in type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) patients who had lower extremity amputations (LEAs) were compared with DM patients without LEAs. Methods: A population-based cohort study was conducted utilizing the data of 2011 patients with newly diagnosed DM with and without LEAs sourced from the Longitudinal Health Insurance Database 2000 (LHID 2000) of the Taiwan National Health Insurance (NHI) program between 1996 and 2008. Main outcome measures: Relative risks (RRs), hazard ratios (HRs), and disease-free rates for various ischemic events. Results: In contrast with the comparison group, subjects with LEAs were more likely to reside in less urbanized areas, be white collar workers, and have higher DM-related costs (. p
