There is growing appreciation for the consequences of socio-economic deprivation on the development, recognition, and outcomes for patients with chronic limb threatening ischaemia (CLTI). Recently, it was identified that deprivation may influence the recognition of CLTI.1 Two contemporary studies, which investigated major UK based healthcare databases, also identified that deprivation was associated with increased risk of major amputation following revascularisation.2,3 However, whether this continues for outcomes following amputation is unknown. This study therefore aimed to investigate whether local area, neighbourhood socio-economic deprivation is associated with one year mortality following major amputation.
