Study population included all injuries that suffered limb amputation due to work and were referred to Laleh hospital during 2005 to 2009 (N=135). The data were collected by check list and analyzed by descriptive and inferential Statistics.

 

Results: Taking care method had a considerable effect on success of replant operation of that limb (P<0.001) so that in 95.23% of injuries whom principles of primary care had been done for them during transportation of amputated limb to hospital, had a successful operation. Treatment results of injuries in large limbs have had a strong relation to interval of incident occurrence to start of operation (P=0.038) How to refer injuries to hospital has not had a meaningful impact on treatment outcome (P=0.469) although referring injuries from health centers of workplace directly to hospital had more successful result comparing to transferring from other hospitals.

 

Conclusion: Appropriate management of work-related injuries leading to amputation especially primary healthcare’s during limb transmission and reducing transmission time, correct organization of referring procedure can prevent occurrence of many devastating disabilities and horrible consequences.
