With no recourse to proper treatment, his condition deteriorated and his hand was rendered dysfunctional.

News report about re-attachment of amputated hand

Submitted by Dr. Mohan on 07 January, 2012

Amputated limbs and parts can be re-attached in a special surgery called microvascular re-implantation. When a part is cut off, the part actually dies due to its blood supply being cut off. Some organs cannot tolerate this for very long and will die. however there are many other tissues and organs that can actually survive in a state of limbo till blood suply is restored. This period is called ischemia time. If the part is cooled, this ischemia time can be lengthened. It is best if the part is kept close to 0 degrees C but should not freeze….

Hence it is best to clean the amputated part with clean mineral water form a freshly opened bottle or prefably sterile saline. no chemicals or antiseptics should be used. The part is then put into a clean plastic bag, sealed and packed with ice all around. Thus it should be transported along with the patient to the nearest center equipped and staffed to do this type of surgery.

Dr. Mohan Rangaswamy is trained in microsurgery and this report describes one among many such cases done by him.

Re-implant of amputated parts

Submitted by Dr. Mohan on 08 January, 2012

A finger, an entire hand, the ears, genitalia.. any of these parts can sometimes get accidentally cut off [or even criminally]. The part that has been severed loses its blood supply and technically dies. However, unlike the brain or heart that cannot tolerate lack of blood supply beyond a few minutes, other parts can stay potentially salvageable for several hours especially if cooled. Most of the peripheral non-viatl organs can tolerate 6 hours of ischemia [lack of blood supply] in room temperature but up to 24 hours if cooled to 4-6 degrees C.
