Would something as this be treatable? Will the doctors have to involve surgery to align all the bones into correct position after which they fix it, or is it done in some other manner?

It's very hard for a double fracture to ever heal completely. that pic looks like leaves. what do you think?

I don't know, hence why I am asking. Just wondering if something like this is possible to fix without amputation.

That would not be treatable; amputation is a must.

>>7638310
It's been done. Big plates and rods, lots of screws, lots of glue, lots of rehab. You set up a scaffold for the bone to set against. I understand they use low intensity ultrasound now to speed up bone healing in such cases.

I have seen an x-ray like that before. When I was a kid, a friend of mine got hit by an ATV while riding his dirt bike. They counted 42 fractures total in his legs and hips. It took over a year of recovery, but he can walk normally and even run a bit (though he's gotten really fat--that's the limiting factor). And this was 20 years ago... I assume things are much more advanced now.

So wait, it's possible to fix this mess (obviously you're not getting 100% mobility back but at least no amputation)?
Think you're right, although this would probably cost couple of fortunes. And a really good doctor.
Just trying to check how far we've advanced. Obviously amputation is easier but hell, that is medieval-tier.

>We lost the patient to follow-up after the last operation in December 2001 but were pleasantly surprised when he returned in May 2004, walking without a caliper or an aid. He as free of pain and had a new job as an autorick-shaw driver. He walked comfortably, with a short-limbed gait. Clinical examination did not show any tenderness or mobility at the site of the previous nonunion. There were two small sinuses at the junction of the middle and upper thirds of the tibia but there was no active discharge and the patient was afebrile.

The bones look completely fucked in the x-ray, but compared to the soft tissue damage this is a non-issue.

They'd be swollen and inflamed as fuck and he would risk ischemia from this and that would be the biggest risk that would lead to amputation. Putting the bones back together would be less of a problem, just find an orthopedic surgeon that likes jigsaw puzzles.

couldn't they use pizioelectricity to aid in the regenerative process of the bone healing? in my biomaterials class, we learned about that as a process for strengthening bone

>couldn't they use pizioelectricity to aid in the regenerative process of the bone healing?

"They" probably could. But you have to consider that an orthopedician is just a glorified carpenter
>>
>>7638310
Umm even if this is real, which it could be, and it would be very messy and tricky to heal medically or even surgically,
the left picture would need to reset the bone on the right (i forget) and the left would need a rod of strong composite, and the knee therapy/surgery depends on shrapnel vectors
the right picture would need the left bone reset (most likely cast) and I can't tell on the right bone, so
surgery on the right image maybe, on the left image most definitely.

tfw medical paper calls the man a "bag of bones"

at least poo in loos are good for something; their archaic unwillingness to undergo amputation forces modern doctors to make progress in limb regeneration
>>
>>7638838
My friend has full mobility. The worst part was not the bone healing, but the ligaments and tendons. Reattachment is tough, and then there's all the time you're not using them, so they tighten up and get weak, and it takes years to recover from that. Probably it was good that he was a kid when it happened. But he plays goalie in ball hockey, so he's clearly not even that inflexible.

He's got a plate in his head, too, and some pins and stuff in his collarbone. It's a blast going to the airport with him....

The money doesn't really matter in a case like this. If you live in Canada or somewhere like that, it's all free. If you live in the USA and don't have insurance, you get it all done (and the hospitals will do it), then declare bankruptcy, and it's basically the same. Or even better, surgeons are usually pretty excited to take on a case like that, and will find grant money, get you to the best hospital, etc. You're probably actually better off having something really catastrophic happen than just breaking it in three places.

>>7640987

My best guess is that with shattered bones like that, the doctors would have to use prosthetic fillers where they couldn't piece together and realign the bone.

Surgery and rehab is gonna cost a fortune and a half that his quarry job probably won't have a fun time paying for.

>>7638925
>Most patients in India opt for retaining a mangled extremity, if given a choice. The severity of the injury does not matter and they are willing to undergo protracted periods of treatment with external fixators and many operations in order to retain their limb, regardless of how stiff it may be. The social stigma associated with an amputation is so degrading that many say they would rather die than have an amputation, despite the merits of early amputation and prosthetic fitting.

India. Crazy talented doctors, crazier people.

On the other hand if it's a below the knee amputation on the table and you were eligible for free or less costly than surgery sweet prosthetic then it'd be worth considering over painful rehab and imperfect regeneration.

Below my knee is pretty much the only limb I'm not super concerned about. Losing my hands would devastate me.

This. Never doubt the ability of the body to heal. True this is severe and complicated injury, and surgery will be required to mate bone materials, but our bones are the basis for our whole bodies and it is not a static system. Bones are constantly undergoing molecular assembly and disassembly.

From the body's perspective, this is a major Mess but merely 10-20% of the whole; the body is a scavenger and recycler by nature and doesn't have an attitude of inefficiency and waste.

Goddamn, medical science is fucking amazing.

I mean as a whole, humanity has got a laundry list of shortcomings, but that skilled doctors and nurses can keep one guy from losing his shattered-to-shit leg, that alone is impressive to the point of inspiration.

And yeah, we're killing ourselves with bombs and car exhaust and fast food and we're fucking all kinds of shit up, but look that that fucking leg, and tell me we won't figure that other shit out. We un-shattered a leg; in time we'll un-fuck the planet.
