Abstract
Transmetatarsal amputation is an excellent procedure in the face of nonhealing ulceration, infection, trauma, peripheral vascular disease, and tumors. This article discusses transmetatarsal amputations, the decision-making process, timing of surgery, operative techniques, postoperative management, and salvage of the failed transmetatarsal amputation.
