AIIMS Bhubaneswar replants completely separate thumb
Recently, AIIMS Bhubaneswar successfully conducted the replantation surgery of a completely amputated left thumb for a duration of 10 hours. The patient was reportedly doing fine after his discharge from the hospital.
The surgery was headed by Professor Sanjay Giri. He said, "After surgery, blood circulation in the joint thumb has started. It means the replantation process has been successful. Gradually the thumb will start functioning with the help of physiotherapy and other precautions," as reported by TOI.
"When such incidents take place, the amputated part has to be wrapped with a gauge piece or cloth piece and the same has to be kept in a polythene bag. Then the polythene bag should be kept properly in an ice chamber. The separated part should not be exposed directly to ice," he added.
