Finger Crush – Franko

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.
