Experimental surgery was done on dogs to unite the completely amputated leg after artificial perfusion by pump oxygenator. The pump oxygenator was used to resusciate the amputated leg to near physiological condition and the femur, sciatic nerve, femoral nerve, muscles, femoral artery, femoral vein and skin were sutured back. Of 39 surgeries performed in a year 6 successful reunions were obtained. During the artificial perfusion, oxygen consumption and glucose metabolism of amputated leg were studied. It was found from the experiments that perfusion of an amputated leg by the same blood is preferably to be limited to two hours. Author
