Complex Hand and Forearm Motorcycle Accident – Franko
History/Diagnosis: This patient sustained a very severe motorcycle accident with open injuries to the forearm, wrist, hand, and fingers. There were fractures of the ulna, radius, ulnar styloid, thumb dislocation, metacarpals, and CMC joints. I took her to the operative room for extensive surgery to repair and reconstruct all of the injuries.
Treatment: Complex repair of all injuries.
Outcome: She did exceptionally well, essentially regaining full function and strength. She returned to riding motorcycles, returned to work, and was very pleased!
