Project Description

This case involves a 57-year-old man who presented to the ER with severe left foot trauma sustained during a workplace injury. A forklift was moving steel beams and, as it turned sharply, the load shifted, causing a 2,500-pound steel beam to fall off and strike the plaintiff’s left foot, crushing it and traumatically amputating the second and great toes. This exhibit was developed to show the severity of the amputation and crush injuries to the soft tissues and fractures to the bones of the plaintiff’s left foot. Other exhibits for this case were created showing the extensive surgical debridements and closures of the amputation sites. The illustrations were based on postoperative patient photos, radiological studies and reports, and operative notes.
