Successful replantation of a hand amputated through the metacarpus. (1/117)

A successful replantation is reported of a hand completely severed by a circular saw through all five metacarpals. The sequence of primary reconstruction of all important structures beginning three hours after the injury and the functional results eighteen months later are presented.  (+info)

Use of a platysma myocutaneous flap for the reimplantation of a severed ear: experience with five cases. (2/117)

CONTEXT: The traumatic loss of an ear greatly affects the patient because of the severe aesthetic deformity it entails. The characteristic format of the ear, with a fine skin covering a thin and elastic cartilage, is not found anywhere else in the human body. Thus, to reconstruct an ear, the surgeon may try to imitate it by sculpting cartilage and covering it with skin. OBJECTIVE: To use a platysma myocutaneous flap for the reimplantation of a severed ear in humans. DESIGN: Case report. SETTING: Emergency unit of the university hospital, Faculty of Medicine, Ribeirao Preto - USP. CASE REPORT: Five cases are reported, with whole ear reimplantation in 3 of them and only segments in 2 cases. The surgical technique used was original and was based on the principle of auricular cartilage revascularization using the platysma muscle. We implanted traumatically severed auricular cartilage into the platysma muscle. The prefabricated ear was later transferred to its original site in the form of a myocutaneous-cartilaginous flap. Of the 5 cases treated using this technique, 4 were successful. In these 4 cases the reimplanted ears showed no short- or long-term problems, with an aesthetic result quite close to natural appearance. In one case there was necrosis of the entire flap, with total loss of the ear. The surgical technique described is simple and utilizes the severed ear of the patient. Its application is excellent for skin losses in the auricular region or for the ear itself, thus obviating the need for microsurgery or the use of protheses or grafts.  (+info)

Lengthening of congenital below-elbow amputation stumps by the Ilizarov technique. (3/117)

Patients with short congenital amputations below the elbow often function as if they have had a disarticulation of the elbow. We have reviewed the results in six patients who had lengthening of such stumps by the Ilizarov technique to improve the fitting of prostheses. The mean lengthening was 5.6 cm (3.4 to 8.4), and in two patients flexion contractures of the elbows were corrected simultaneously. Additional lateral distraction was used in one patient to provide a better surface on the stump. There were no major complications. All six patients were able to use their prosthesis at the latest follow-up after 39 to 78 months.  (+info)

Experimental and clinical application of microvascular surgery. (4/117)

The object of these studies was the development of a technique whereby a vessel of 1 mm or smaller could be easily anastomosed. In total replantation of rabbit ears, only 3 ears survived replantation in 80 attempts in the first series. In the second series of 80, 35 ears survived completely, 3 ears partially survived and 8 additional ears survived the postoperative period, but the rabbits died within 2 weeks due to diarrhea. Thirty-five ears failed and venous obstruction was the primary cause. Free transplantation of a great toe and a second toe to recreate a thumb is also described. The operative procedure of the great toe to thumb transplantation does not appear to be difficult. Six months after operation, the function of the newly created thumb was good. The second toe to thumb transfer was more difficult technically compared to the great toe to thumb transfer due to the much smaller size of the digital vessels of the second toe. However, removal of the second toe causes less disadvantage than the removal of the great toe. Nine months postoperatively, the function of the newly created thumb was satisfactory. Digital replantation is described with 36 cases with 65 complete finger amputations. Thirty-two with 45 fingers survived the reattachment. Repair of one artery per digit is sufficient, although two probably are better. A minimum of 2 veins per digit must be repaired. Prompt re-exploration is imperative if postoperative circulatory impairment occurs. In this group, arterial obstruction was more frequent than venous obstruction as the cause of replantation failure. The function of the replanted fingers is satisfactory in the majority of the cases.  (+info)

Autoamputation of the tongue. (5/117)

Autoamputation is an uncommon phenomenon that has been reported for the fingers, toes, appendix, ovary, spleen, etc. Autoamputation of the tongue has never been reported. An elderly man with carcinoma of lateral pharyngeal wall and tonsil presented with an autoamputated tongue that was attached to the oral cavity with a thin band. The patient required detachment of the tongue and tracheostomy followed by radiotherapy for the primary tumour.  (+info)

Battle casualities. (6/117)

Eighty casualities, mainly due to explosive devices, sustained over a period of 3 1/2 months by the armed forces of the Sultan of Oman in counterinsurgency operations are analysed and their management by a British field surgical team is described. Of the 73 who reached the surgical centre alive, 56 per cent had suffered major injuries, yet all but 2 survived, giving an overall survival rate of 88.75 per cent (71/80). The effects of first aid and rapid evacuation on survival and their influence on the surgical work load and on the facilities required for treatment are assessed, together with their relevance to the planning of military and civilian accident services.  (+info)

The V-Y plasty in the treatment of fingertip amputations. (7/117)

Fingertip amputations are injuries commonly seen by family physicians. The classification of fingertip injuries corresponds with the normal anatomy of the tip of the digit. There are three zones of injury; the V-Y plasty technique is used to repair zone II injuries. The plane of the injury can be described as dorsal, transverse or volar. The dorsal and transverse planes lend themselves to the use of the V-Y plasty technique. In carefully selected injuries, the family physician can use this technique to repair the injured digit. The use of a single V-Y plasty has replaced the original technique that repaired the digit and restored the contour of the fingertip. Good cosmetic and functional results can be obtained. Complications may include flap sloughing, infection and sensory changes.  (+info)

Wheeled mobility: factors influencing mobility and assistive technology in veterans and servicemembers with major traumatic limb loss from Vietnam war and OIF/OEF conflicts.
Amputation refers to the removal of body extremities, such as arms, legs, hands, feet, fingers and toes. Amputation can take place surgically or through trauma.. Surgical amputations usual take place as a matter of last resort when a body part has been damaged too severely to be saved or has a serious infection which may spread to other parts of the body.. Traumatic amputations involve an extremity being torn or cut from the body during an accident. These most often occur in road accidents, in particular those involving bicycles, motorcycles and pedestrians, and accidents at work, especially were heavy machinery is involved.. No matter the cause, amputation will have a dramatic, possibly life changing, effect on the sufferer. Aside from the pain and suffering you may not be able to continue to work in the role you had prior to the incident or even at all. You may have difficulty in performing tasks you previously took for granted and could need a prosthetic limb, a wheelchair or other walking ...

American soldiers and Marines walking combat patrols in Afghanistan have suffered a surge of gruesome injuries, losing one or both legs and often their genitals to crude homemade bombs Taliban insurgents bury in dirt roads and pathways.. In some cases, American military surgeons tell The Huffington Post, these traumatic amputations occur so close to soldiers hips that it is difficult to fit prosthetic legs, severely limiting the patients future mobility and rehabilitation. In addition, the loss of sexual function for formerly healthy young men in their early 20s causes severe anxiety and depression and can wreck new marriages.. The latest wave of severe injuries comes after Gen. David Petraeus ordered U.S. troops in Afghanistan last year to get out of their protective armored vehicles and start walking. "Patrol on foot whenever possible and engage the population," he directed in guidance to his troops last August.. The order was hailed as an essential counterinsurgency tactic used to get ...

Health experts estimate that between 1,700 and 2,000 children in the United States are injured each year by riding power lawn mowers. Between the years 2003-2005 in Indiana, 40 percent of all lawn-mower related injuries that were serious enough to require hospitalization involved children less than 16 years of age. One half of these hospitalizations involved children 6 years of age or younger.. "The majority of lawn mower-related injuries to children are to the legs, feet, or toes," said Dr. Graves. "When children come in contact with the rotating blades, the resulting injuries often cause deep cuts to body tissues and bones, requiring many surgical procedures.". According to state health officials, its not just the lawn mowers themselves that can cause injury. Young children can fall or slip into the operating mower blade while playing and running nearby. Children can be injured while operating the mower themselves when too young to do so, or when preschoolers and school-age children fall off ...

2.) Dont laugh when I say this.... but I got thrown off of a lawnmower. HAHA. I know what you are thinking... so I will add some more details. My dads riding mower broke across the street in a field and he needed to tow it in behind his pickup truck. He said he would drive and I would steer the mower. He assured me he would go SLOW. Well, he was very kind to me until we got on the road and he sped up to about 25 mph or so. Well, I realized all too late that connecting the mower to the truck via a rope just was not a good idea because him slowing down wouldnt slow ME down! As you can imagine, I was freaking out trying to figure out what I was going to do before we got to our driveway. Well, my dad made the sharp right turn.... and I ATTEMPTED to do the same. I managed to slow down a little (lawn mower breaks arent the best as you can imagine), miss the ditch, miss all of our pine trees and I missed the huge sign for my dads kennel (he breeds chessies). I ended up bailing off the mower as it ...

A buddy of mine says a mowers ground speed can be sped up by using a smaller engine shaft pulley. Is this true seems pretty simple?
It could be argued that the very first lawnmowers were live stock. The problem was they were quite high maintenance devices and tended to provide a very uneven cut, which did not bode well for families striving for the nicest front lawn on the dirt road. Coupled with the foul odor of their byproducts, the animals became quite unpopular and were gradually moved out of site into the back yards. Other solutions were sought to maintain the prestigious front yard.. The first mechanical lawnmower was invented in 1830 by a man named Edwin Budding, no doubt in an effort to one-up his neighbor, who still employed a Scythe. Buddings mower looked much like todays classic reel mowers, where a rotating cylinder houses the blades and rotates as the mower is pushed forward. Budding was granted a patent for his device by England, much to the dismay of his fellow neighbors - most of whom were forced to buy Buddings mower due to the fact that everyone else in the neighborhood bought one, even though they ...

you know this year re determined to take care of our new beautiful backyard, so much that for valentines day I bought my husband a brand new mower only to use it 1 1/2 times and then have it mysteriously walk out of our yard (blogged about it @ www.lewis4higher.blogspot.com some time ago) with the weedeater my father had brought us from Utah, since then we were given a mower from freecycle.org and my husband put money to fix it and get it running only to have a piston blow and now it is trash, and he didnt even get to finish mowing the front yard, the backyard is so overgrown I am actually jealous of your back yard, we have tree growing where we dont want them it is so overgrown, unfortunately the back yard has just barely dried up enough so that we can mow it and go figure we still dont have a working mower, but recently bought one from a yard sale for $50, now in July we should finally have the money to get it running so we can finally have our backyard to play with come july, till then we ...

Heres what Leviathor wrote as a caption to this photo:. "I was cutting the grass in the back yard last year, when I saw something dart under the mower deck. This little guy was what I found after stopping the mower.. I checked him out, tickled his feet and belly, and he seemed to be okay. He had a cut above his eye, though, so I took him to the countys pet facility. They said theyd take care of him.. Hes really quite fortunate, because I didnt cut the backyard grass for the duration of summer, so the grass was very tall (upwards of a foot in some places), and it bedded down on top of him, and acted as protection. Due to the length of the grass, I was forced to cut in two passes, one with the wheels off the ground, and then one level cut. The little guy went un-noticed for the first pass.. Im sure he needed the luck of both his little bunny feet.". See http://www.flickr.com/photos/leviathor/114789927/, or use the hyperlink that Meg put right above the pic, OK? ...

Citation: Shinners, T.J., Digman, M.F., Panuska, J.C. 2012. Overlap loss of manually and automatically guided mowers. Applied Engineering in Agriculture. 28(1):5-8. Interpretive Summary: Overlap loss in harvesting machinery has been observed as a necessary inefficiency for many years. Each time a non-row-crop machine (such as a hay mower) makes a pass in the field, it is favorable for the operator to overlap slightly into the previous pass (where the crop has already been cut) as opposed to undercutting and leaving a strip of crop standing. In this study, overlap loss was explored through a controlled experiment as well as an on-farm survey. In the controlled experiment, we tested how driver experience and cutting speed influenced the amount of overlap. The cutting speeds tested were 4, 6, and 8 miles per hour (mph). The experienced driver had been cutting at the research farm for over five years and the second driver was new to the job. We conducted the experiment in first and second cutting ...

Was it done by electric or gas? So why use gas in this day and age? Makes no sense.... SEND ...

So when the time comes to mow, I have the kids fed and happy, I get Ever distracted, give Xian instructions on watching him (and not going outside) spend another 15 min trying to find the stuff to pump up the tires and then I FINALLY start mowing. I get about ½ way through when I hear a funny noise and the mower stops cutting (it is still running, just not cutting). UGH!! So I drive it to the house, lie on the ground and peer up underneath it and try to see what is wrong. Dont ask me how I could see a thing up there but I could and it looked like the belt that is connected to the blades was off. I have this saying . . . I can function fine and get things done as long as the things around me (including computer and in this case lawn mower) are WORKING!! If they quit working, well, lets just say I get really stressed out (especially if I am pregnant and sick and tired and alone). I am so frustrated and I am so quickly loosing my window of opportunity to mow. So I call Charlie in to vent and ...

Wife just called asking where lawnmower key was. I recognize this now for what it is. A shit test for me to say, "Dont worry about it. Ill do it when I get home." But, I told her where the key was and to have fun. Haha. I could tell she wasnt ready for that. She responded a few comments about hopefully being able to figure it out (again more guilt-loaded shit tests to get me to say Id do it). I told her to have fun and shed learn a thing or two. She replied, "Well, does it have any gas in it?" (another attempt) I replied, I dont know, but fill it up if it needs it." She replied, "No, I dont want to fill it up with gas." See, she wanted the grass cut. She didnt care about how busy I am or how many other priorities I have in front of the grass. She wanted appeasement on the grass, plain and simple, but she didnt think it was worthy of her time to fill it up with gas. Think of that... She didnt feel it was worth one minute of her time to fill up the lawn mower, but an hour of my time ...

Productive activity. Twenty-nine participants indicated that the need to work or attend school did not apply to them. In addition, 15 indicated they were not economically self-sufficient.. Discussion. Profile of the study population. The increased ratio of males to females as found in the study is in accordance with the literature2,14,15,16. The majority of participants (21) was younger than 60 years old. This is similar to results from other African studies14,15, but contrasts with those of Hendry18, who found a mean age of 60.3 years in a study based at Tygerberg Hospital. It appears that Diabetes Mellitus (DM) caused amputations at relatively younger ages in the current study population, since Table III shows that DM was the cause of the amputation in 19 instances. Reasons for this might be multifaceted and related to race, South Africas stage of economic development and poverty18,19. The findings pointed to a lower rate of traumatic amputations than those found by Bakkes15 and Kidmas et ...

Lawn season is winding down, and leaf season is picking up. Both of them involve your mower. Ignore the old advice that says the last mowing of the season should be shorter than usual, Ohio State University turfgrass experts say in the most recent issue of OSUs Buckeye Yard and Garden Line newsletter. Rather than give the lawn a late-fall scalping, you should continue to mow at the proper height for your grass. How high is that? The OSU Extension fact sheet Mowers and Mowing has a chart of recommended heights, plus lots of other good information on maintaining your lawn. You can use your mower for more than grass cutting, too. Mowing over your leaves will chop them into fine pieces that you can leave on your lawn as natures own fertilizer. As the leaves break down, theyll add nutrients to the soil. The leaves shred best when theyre slightly damp, such as after a light dew, Fine Gardening magazine…

What is amputation?. Amputation is the complete removal of an injured or deformed body part. An amputation may be the result of a traumatic injury or may be the result of a planned operation where the finger must be removed. Some traumatically amputated fingers may be replanted or reattached, but in some cases, reattachment of the amputated finger is not possible or advisable. Conditions, such as a tumor, may require that a finger be surgically amputated to preserve a persons health.. How is an amputation done?. When an amputation is necessary, the surgeon removes the injured body part and prepares the remaining part for future prosthetic use. This means careful treatment of the skin, muscles, tendons, bones and nerves, so that a prosthesis can be worn with comfort. The surgeon decides the length of the remaining body part based on medical and prosthetic factors.. What can I expect after surgery?. For the first couple of weeks, you should expect some pain, which is controlled with pain ...
My husband and I have a push reel mower and at first I did most of the mowing. The only comments I would get from neighbors is either "wow I havent seen one of those things in ages" or "you know they have gas-powered mowers available".

I felt good that I was out there showing those men that not only can I mow the lawn, but I dont need a fancy powered-up mower to do it. Plus, its good exercise and youre not polluting.

This shouldnt be a political issue - Because this is about giving veterans who have sacrificed everything -- every option we have to help them fulfill the simple dream of starting a family. As we all know, our men and women in uniform have become increasingly susceptible to reproductive, spinal and traumatic brain injuries due to the changing weapons of war. But thanks to modern medicine, many of these servicemembers are being kept alive and are returning home. In fact, as of the New Year, there are 2,348 servicemembers who are living with reproductive, urinary or pelvic injuries. And like so many of our veterans, these men and women come home looking to return to their lives, to find employment, and so often to start a family. Yet what they find when they go to the VA is that the fertility services available dont meet their complex needs. ...
Traumatic amputation is one of the major injuries seen as a result of Operation Iraqi and Enduring Freedom with the majority being single trans-tibial amputations (TTA). TTA experience significant reductions in thigh muscle strength of the amputated limb during the first year after amputation. The residual limb is less active in daily functions of standing and walking, resulting in progressive atrophy of the quadriceps muscles in terms of a decrease in thigh diameter which is estimated at 25% of pre-amputation diameter. An intervention that may be useful in TTA rehabilitation is neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES). The overall objectives of this study is to test two different approaches to prosthetic rehabilitation as potential treatments for improving muscle strength, pain and functional performance of daily activities in military personnel with TTA. Our central hypothesis is that a Nurse Managed NMES rehabilitation program will have greater improvements in muscle strength and pain as ...
Rationale:. Phantom limb pain following amputation is a major clinical problem. Current evidence how to best prevent phantom limb pain is equivocal because previous trials have included small numbers of patients, and tested heterogeneous patient collectives. There is some evidence that optimized perioperative pain control is effective in preventing phantom limb pain, but the potential added role of regional anesthesia has not been defined.. Objective:. The Aim of this study is to test the hypothesis that sciatic nerve block decreases the point prevalence of phantom limb pain 12 months after transtibial amputation for peripheral vascular disease compared to optimized intravenous pain therapy.. Study design:. Randomized, prospective, double-blind (patient, physician, statistician) clinical trial. All patients will receive standard optimized intravenous anesthesia and analgesia (opiate patient-controlled analgesia (PCA), intravenous ketamine). Patients in the intervention group will receive ...
Summary: A new study reports transcranial magnetic stimulation can significantly reduce phantom limb pain.. Source: American Pain Society.. As many as 25,000 people a year worldwide lose limbs from land mine blasts, and a new study, published in The Journal of Pain, shows that transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) administered to the scalp can stimulate the brain and provide significant reductions in phantom limb pain.. A team of researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital and Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital evaluated the benefits of the brain-stimulation method in 54 patients who had amputations due to land-mine explosions. They compared results of patients given transcranial brain stimulation and a placebo treatment to determine if the procedure could provide significant relief from phantom limb pain (PLP).. PLP is a neuropathic condition manifested by pain felt as a result of a patients enduring psychological perception of the amputated limb, and it occurs in up to 87 percent of ...

Aim: To evaluate the incidence of lower extremity amputation among inpatients with diabetic foot. To assess the risk factors leading to lower extremity amputation in the same patients. Materials and methods: Diabetic foot patients who required admission during the study period were selected and evaluated. Clinical and laboratory analysis was done for all patients and comparison done between those whose treatment included minor or major amputation of lower extremity with those who were managed without amputation.. Result: The study consists of 100 patients of diabetic foot with 77 of them going for major or minor amputation and 23 of them treated without amputation. A detailed analysis between amputated and non-amputated group showed significant difference in the following factors: age, duration of diabetes, HbA1c, Ankle Brachial Index (ABI), Wagner grade of ulcer and history of previous amputation. Conclusion: Among the many risk factors for diabetic foot, our group of patients had higher ...
Many servicemembers supporting Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) have engaged in intense and prolonged combat, which research has shown to be strongly associated with the risk of developing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). GAO, in response to the Ronald W. Reagan National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2005, (1) describes DODs extended health care benefit and VAs health care services for OEF/OIF veterans; (2) analyzes DOD data to determine the number of OEF/OIF servicemembers who may be at risk for PTSD and the number referred for further mental health evaluations; and (3) examines whether DOD can provide reasonable assurance that OEF/OIF servicemembers who need further mental health evaluations receive referrals.DOD offers an extended health care benefit to some OEF/OIF veterans for a specified time period, and VA offers health care services that include specialized PTSD services.
Intentional tooth replantation is a last-resort procedure, recommended only when all other techniques, short of tooth ext raction, have been exhausted or are impractical. Although most endodontic textbooks describe the procedure, and many reports of intentional replantation have appeared in the dental literature, none have reported use of the technique to retain a removable partial denture abutment tooth. This article presents such a case and the rationale for the decision to intentionally replant. Eighteen-month follow-up clinical and radiographic results are presented ...
Introduction. The brachial plexus is a complex network of nerves that originate in the neck and is formed from the ventral rami of C5 to T1. It gives rise to numerous nerves that control motor and sensory function of the upper limbs.. Motorcycle accidents are the most common cause of all brachial plexus injuries in adults resulting from forced traction applied to the nerves (C5-T1) of the brachial plexus. The head and shoulders are forced apart and cause either nerve root avulsion injuries or stretch/rupture injuries. Preganglionic injuries are located proximal to the dorsal root ganglion whilst postganglionic injuries are located distal to the dorsal root ganglion.1. Differentiating between preganglionic and postganglionic brachial plexopathies is a crucial distinction as it determines patient management. Nerve transfers are used in the management of preganglionic injuries whilst postganglionic injuries are repaired with nerve grafting or managed conservatively.2 Most surgeons (94%) operating ...

  • The incidence of post-injury PE in this large cohort of combat amputees is significantly higher than previously described and increased as the level of lower extremity amputation increased. (sages.org)
  • Additionally, amputations performed above the zone of injury, particularly for transfemoral amputees ("high -femoral"), would leave them with fewer prosthetic options, which also necessitates an approach focusing on more long-term outcomes ( 1 ). (amegroups.com)
  • These include depression, poor adjustment to disability and post-traumatic stress disorder. (barattarussell.com)
  • It is also unknown whether physical function, cognitive function, and employment prior to amputation affects depression risk. (diva-portal.org)
  • Occupational and individual characteristics prior to amputation did not greatly change depression risk following amputation. (diva-portal.org)
  • We speculate that a coordinated combination of social support and medical management may help reduce persistent depression risk in men who experience amputation. (diva-portal.org)

  • We have taken a more in-depth approach to traumatic amputations, which would allow, over a long-term, more of a functional return, utilizing an approach of expectant wound care and delayed reconstruction based on the patient's clinical condition and presentation, with osteomyoplastic amputation as a primary procedure ( Figure 1 ).
