Abstract


Amputation of multiple fingers of both hands is a rare and serious injury. We report a case of a 41-year-old male patient who presented to Khoula Hospital, Muscat, Oman, in 2015 with the amputation of nine fingers due to a workplace injury. With two teams working in tandem, all the amputated fingers were re-attached. A total of seven fingers survived and the patient regained reasonable functionality of his hands. To the best of the authors’ knowledge, this is the first case of several finger amputations in Oman.

Keywords: Fingers; Traumatic Amputation; Crush Injuries; Replantation; Case Report; Oman.
