After watching this video you will be able to understand how to perform amputation of leg below knee, here we have done amputation of right leg, this person was suffering from diabetic foot. All procedure was done under spinal anesthesia, we are highly thankful to Dr Sandesh at Dr RML hospital, New Delhi for this great work.
First of all we decided the area and marked a point through which incision has to be done, Muscles were cut by knife or diathermy, bleeders were tied and incised ou, after that bones like tibia and fibula were cut with the help of wires. Finally we washed the wound with hydrogen peroxide, normal saline, and dressing was done with betadiene, we have not closed this wound and will perform closing in second sitting. You can watch out whole of the video of amputation below on youtube.
