Indian Doctors Perform A 7-hours Pioneering Surgery To Reattach The Right Arm Of A Man That Was Sliced Off By A Train

Ahmedabad Gujarat, a 28-year old Indian father suffered a life changing injury when his right arm was sliced off by a train after he slipped and fell on the tracks. He was rushed to hospital while his friends carried the unattached arm in a plastic bag.

Hope is however on the horizon as he has undergone pioneering surgery to have the arm reattached.

He was admitted to plastic surgery unit where doctors carried out a seven-hour operation to reattach the limb.
After the successful operation, Gujarat then underwent several skin grafting surgeries for the remaining raw areas.

Consultant Dr Nitin Ghag said: 'Any amputation and amputations of upper extremities, in particular, have a major impact on patients' lives, as loss of function can not only affect his daily life but also hinder social interactions and capacity for work.

'As major amputations occur frequently with high-energy trauma, accompanied by various and occasionally life-threatening injuries, it is important to primarily address those injuries to save the patient's life.

'The decision between salvaging or amputating a limb must be made rapidly.'
