    Resumo

    GOLDSTEIN, Neal; BIDDULPH, Grant  e  LUKHELE, M. High-pressure injection injury of the thumb. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2012, vol.11, n.1, pp. 63-66. ISSN 1681-150X.

    High-pressure injection injuries of the hand are relatively rare but potentially devastating injuries. We highlight a clinical case that presented to the Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital Hand Unit. The pathophysiology of this phenomenon, as well as the risk factors associated with a poor prognosis, is discussed. Management strategies are explored after a review of the literature. This case demonstrates the results from delays in early surgical management and the lack of education about high-pressure injection injuries amongst employers, employees and primary health care physicians.
