In brief: That's a question-

-that can't really B answered.
U do not give us the situation . If gangrenous, severely injured with compromise of circulation, a diabetic with small vessel disease. They're beneficial if there is no other way 2 save the extremity. This applies 2 arms, legs & digits. It is a hard decision @ times 4 both patients & surgeons 2 make.
