Role of Primary Skeltal Stabalization in Manageent of Crush Hand Injuries
Keywords:Hand injuries, skeletal stabilization, trauma fracture
This is a series of 24 patients with Gustillo III crush hand injuries presenting to Mayo Hospital Emergency Department. They were managed according to a pre- decided protocol, with fixation with K- wires within 24 hrs of presentation with a low infection rate of just 12.5% in these heavily contaminated wounds, we achieved good mobility in 79.1% patients at six months follow up, with minimal other complications and just 2 amputations. This argues heavily in favor of early fixation being used as the standard treatment in such injuries.
