Repair and reconstruction

Posted by: Philip Alex | Posted on: January 5th, 2013 | 0 Comments

Three boys from Punjab were brought with the history of being assaulted with a sword. One of them was in shock, with both arteries, all the nerves and all the tendons in his forearm divided. His hand was lifeless and pale, devoid of blood supply. He was taken for surgery where the arteries were joined then the nerves joined, then the tendons joined back. We thank God that the hand pinked up and became viable again. The others were also fixed up, who had similar but injuries of lesser extent. They were all discharged safely home in two days. These procedures took all night to do.
