Bhikham Singh, (aged 100 years plus) S/o Mr. Ram Puri R/o Jammu region got a severe injury while working at home with chaff cutting machine (Toka Machine) wherein, his right hand thumb, index, index middle finger at finger at proximal phangeal levels & ring finger at distal phalanx were amputated. The patient’s family immediately contacted Amandeep Hospital over phone & took medical advice to bring the amputated part to Amandeep Hospital for further treatment. Family brought the patient in Amandeep Hospital, Amritsar on the next day early morning & re-plantation surgeries were performed on the very same day. All other fingers were replanted except middle finger as it was badly crushed. Bhikham Singh was discharged after 6 days. He is perfectly all right now & can perform all his routine works like eating food with his hands, performing all agricultural works, he can move the chaff machine (Toka Machine) also. Bhikham Singh is very happy after replantation. On contacting him, he said that after amputation, he was not having any ray of hope. But when brought to Amandeep Hospital, my limb was saved & a new life was given to me.
Dr. Ravi Mahajan, Chief Plastic Surgeon, Amandeep Hospital said that this was one of the rarest of the rare case. There were so many problems like age of the patient was a big hindrance factor and moreover; the difference between the injury time & when patient reached hospital was also quite high. There was huge blood loss due to delay in arrival.
Team of plastic surgeons at Amandeep Hospital worked hard to save the limb of the patient & it was not less than a miracle that we could save his most of the fingers except middle finger which was crushed very badly. Now the patient is perfectly all right & is able to perform his routine works without any problem.
We want to guide such patients that they should reach the hospital immediately after the accident without any delay so that their precious limbs can be saved.
