Sometimes, decision of amputation is quite difficult due to high mortality and morbidity in extremity traumas with vascular component. Therefore, several scoring systems have been developed. We retrospectively investigated the competence of Johansen Scoring,which is one of the scoring systems mentioned above, in the decision of amputation in 28 cases administrated to our emergency service between August 1992 and July 1997, and we observed that there is a specificity of 68% and a sensitivity of 91%.
