Crush Injuries of the Right Foot

This medical exhibit features three dorsal (top) views of the right foot illustrating the injuries in this region at various depths.

The second image illustrates the underlying muscles and soft tissues of the foot with the skin and fat removed. This internal view shows the swelling and devitalization of the musculature, as well as the hematoma which developed within the soft tissues. The third image illustrates the underlying skeletal anatomy with all skin and soft tissue removed. This image reveals the various fractures and displacement of the metatarsals which is specifically on the post-accident x-rays.
