At the time of emergency admission at the City Children’s Hospital, the patient’s hand was purple and the risk of amputation was imminent. Doctors immediately performed emergency re-canalization surgery. However, the bruise was too complicated, easy to clot, causing embolism, the patient had to have 2 more re-canalization surgery.

When taking anticoagulants, the wound bleeds profusely, so the child receives continuous blood transfusions. Doctors had to dissect the forearm because the wound was too tight, causing compression of the cavity. In addition, the baby also has to graft the skin of the thigh to the flap of the arm skin.

After nearly a month of treatment, with the cooperation of doctors from the Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Vascular Surgery, Anesthesia, and Resuscitation, the baby is now temporarily stable in terms of resuscitation. Then, continue to be transferred to the Department of General Surgery for treatment.

Currently, the baby’s hand movement is temporary, but must do physical therapy continuously to avoid the risk of stiffness.
