  1. A socioeconomic analysis of digital replantations resulting from home use of power tools.

    Article - En anglais

    Forty-seven digits in 21 patients who sustained partial or complete amputations from the home use of power tools were replanted or revascularized during a 1-year period.

    This represented 69% of the microvascular surgery performed for hand injuries during that year.

    The cost of repairing an average of 2.4 digits was $7000 (surgeon's fee) plus $697 per hour (operating room fee), as per fiscal year 1987.
