PAD, ULCER and neuropathy are costly and disabling lower extremity conditions that can lead to amputation. The number of hospital discharges for PAD showed no significant change from 1998 to 1991, increased from 1991 to 1996 and decreased from 1996 to 2007. However, the number of discharges for neuropathy and ULCER increased throughout the period. In 2007, about 113,000 hospital discharges were for ULCER, 84,000 were for PAD, and 75,000 were for neuropathy.
