Right Upper Extremity Injuries
Right Upper Extremity Injuries

This stock medical exhibit begins with one large anterior view of the upper torso. In this image, the bones, major nerves and arteries are shown transparently beneath the skin. This provides an overall orientation to the sites of the various injuries including the fractures of the scapula, ulna and radius, the damage to the axillary artery and the injuries to the brachial plexus. Also included are enlarged skeletal views of each fracture site. In addition, two cross sectional views of the forearm are included to compare normal anatomy versus anatomy demonstrating compartment syndrome. The normal anatomy image shows how the vessels and nerves of the arm run within various fascial compartments along with the muscles of the arm. The cross-section showing compartment syndrome shows how severe swelling and edema within these compartments cause compression of the arteries and nerves leading to pain and devascularization.
