Partial Amputation of the Right Hand with Reattachment
This exhibit depicts a partial amputation injury to the right hand with surgical reattachment. The bony pre-op condition shows partial amputation and fractures through the carpal bones. Overlying soft tissue damages include: transection of the thumb through the extensor tendons, transection of the dorsal vein, and transection of the dorsal sensory nerve. Post-operatively, the carpals have been reduced, with fracture reductions held in place with K-wires. The wrist extensor tendons have been reattached to their distal counterparts with sutures. The dorsal sensory nerve and dorsal vein have also been sutured.
