Abstract

Lower extremity amputation results in significant global morbidity and mortality. Australia appears to have a paucity of studies investigating lower extremity amputation. The primary aim of this retrospective study was to investigate key conditions associated with lower extremity amputations in an Australian population. Secondary objectives were to determine the influence of age and sex on lower extremity amputations, and the reliability of hospital coded amputations.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 06 June 2012.
All research outputs
#6,902,621
of 12,434,464 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Foot and Ankle Research
#360
of 500 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#56,617
of 119,545 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Foot and Ankle Research
#2
of 3 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,434,464 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 43rd percentile – i.e., 43% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 500 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 8.2. This one is in the 26th percentile – i.e., 26% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 119,545 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 51% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 3 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
