History: 37 year old gentleman was in a motorcycle accident where he sustained a severe trauma and crush to his middle and ring fingers. I met him in the trauma bay where he had significant crushed finger tips and open wounds. Based on the amount of injury, I recommended revising the amputated digit tips to regain function.
Diagnosis: Left 3rd and 4th digits open distal tuft fractures
Treatment: Revision amputation of the 3rd and 4th digits
Outcome: He had a rapid and smooth recovery. He worked hard on therapy and regained function and strength within a few months. Images below are from his 5 month appointment where he had returned to fully normal function.
