Why Amputations Occur

Why Amputations Occur

Surgical amputations are sometimes necessary when poor circulation caused by vascular disease causes tissue in the extremities to die and become infected. Traumatic injuries can also cause or lead to amputations, including:

Limbs can be severed in motor vehicle collisions or caught in machinery and amputated in industrial accidents. In crushing and other injuries, limbs may be damaged so severely that they must be surgically amputated after an accident.

Severe burns can damage muscles, ligaments, tendons, and blood vessels in limbs, and infection may set in, leading to amputation. Surgical amputations are sometimes necessary when severe infections develop following other surgeries.

Consequences of Amputations

Consequences of Amputations

Traumatic amputations can be extremely painful, with severe bleeding. Limb loss can have drastic effects on a victim’s quality and enjoyment of life. It can affect mobility and the ability to perform normal activities of daily living.

In some cases, victims may be permanently confined to a wheelchair. Amputation can affect a victim’s ability to work and to engage in sports and other activities enjoyed before the accident. Loss of a former way of life can be extremely difficult emotionally for amputation accident victims.
