Traumatic Crush Injuries
Traumatic Crush Injuries

This medical exhibit begins with one large anterior upper body view of a male figure from the chest down to the knees. The anterior wall and various intraperitoneal organs of the abdomen are removed allowing us to clearly see the deeper organs, posterior abdominal wall and the lumbar spine. The skeletal anatomy of the upper legs are shown transparently beneath the skin. We include the crush injury to the tail of the pancreas surrounded by the retroperitoneal hemorrhage from the damaged adrenal gland, the compression fracture of L5, the transverse process fractures of L4, L5 and S1 and the comminuted and angulated fracture of the distal aspect of the right femur. Also, one sagittal (side cut-away) view of the lumbar spine to show the compression fracture at L5 and the retrolisthesis of L5, the anterior compression of L4 and the abnormalities of the L3-4 and L4-5 discs.
