PMID:  1981636     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Syme's amputation was performed in one stage in 8 and in two stages in 13 patients. Failures were defined as those requiring a more proximal amputation and were present in patients with vascular disease only. The failure rate was 38% in the group with vascular disease and 24% in the total group. Syme's amputation provides the patient with a durable end-bearing stump, even in insensitive feet.
