A successful limb salvage of an electrical burned patient with extensive soft tissue and femoral bone necrosis
from Journal of Burn Care & Research
Severe electrical injury presents a formidable therapeutic challenge for surgeons because of the requirement for complex soft tissue and bony reconstruction to restore functionality of the injured area. The authors report on the limb salvage procedure for a patient with extensive soft tissue and femoral bone necrosis from a high-voltage electrical burn. The right thigh and knee were burned, resulting in large areas of muscle necrosis and a long segment of distal femur exposure and necrosis.
