Abstract: ABSTRACT Background Amputation word is derived from ‘Ambi’ meaning ‘around’ and ‘Putare’ meaning to prune or cut away, Amputation surgery has dated by to Hippocrates, It was a drastic measure undertaken to save life. Amputation was undertaken as a crude procedure in which limb was rapidly severed without anaesthesia, hemostasis was achieved by crushing the limb or by dipping it boiling oil. Needless to say the mortality was high due to blood loss, shock and sepsis. After the advent of asepsis, anesthesia and hemostasis in the mid nineteenth century, surgeons are focusing on tissue conservation. Objective:This study has been performed to know the various causes their preoperative factors like age, gender, laterality of disease, and intra operative factors like duration of surgery , blood loss and post operative complications of below knee amputation surgery in Shri Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Sarvopchar Rugnalay, Solapur.
