Table saw injuries are common replant service referrals. This case demonstrates a patient who severly injured his hand using a table saw. The case study demonstrated the extent of injury and surgical intervention. The following images are very graphic related to the degree of injury.
Thumb amputations are common roping injuries. The thumb can be caught between the saddle horn and the rope. As the calf is caught and the horse stops, the thumb can be "pulled off" on the roping hand if it is between the saddle horn and the rope. The result is typically an amputation of the thumb with tendon pulling away from the hand.
