If a severed limb is not immediately preserved or if it is badly damaged, i.e., torn or crushed, it may not be successfully re-attached. Even following extensive physical therapy after a limb is amputated, patients suffer from a considerable amount of pain in the limb remnant and experience the perception that their amputated limb is still there, a condition known as phantom limb.
The crushing amputation of the forearm such as can happen in car wrecks,
trucking accidents, and especially
motorcycle crashes and
pedestrian accidents, cause extensive soft tissue injury and can leave several bone fragments within the wound. If the elbow joint is not destroyed, this can significantly facilitate the movements of the prosthesis with which amputees are often eventually fitted.
The initial surgery following an injury which severs or detaches a limb typically involves irrigation and debridement of the wound, and a revision of the bone and soft tissue of the original injury site. Typically, one or often many surgeries will follow for further revision of the forearm or remnant limb.
