Clin Occup Environ Med. 2006;5(2):407-11, ix. doi: 10.1016/j.coem.2005.11.007.

Abstract

High-pressure injection injuries of the hand represent one of the most serious surgical emergencies of the upper extremity. It is imperative to understand the mechanism of injury and the parts that take place for this injury to occur (material, pressure, site of injury). Prompt recognition and treatment may alter the final outcome.
