Open Palm Surgery

Open Palm Surgery

Did this picture make you take a look at or feel your own palm? You are not alone. Pictures like that hit closer to home than say… beheadings even though the latter are incomparably more gory. Unless of course you’re as fucked in the head as I am and imagined an eagle spread vagina after seeing this pic.

The use of fancy tools suggest that it is a picture of a surgery. What it is the surgeon is fixing in an open palm – I do not know but it shows how incredibly elaborate the most advanced tool in existence looks from the inside. Luckily for this guy, they say that using your left hand to masturbate with feels like having it done by somebody else…

    1. I forget what they are called (my medical vocabulary is way rusty), but basically they jab it into the meat and use it to keep the skin out of their way. Prolly causes more pain post-op than the surgery itself! Looks painful!

    1. Bingo. That is exactly what this is, could be an old picture, maybe? But otherwise, not out of the ordinary. Endoscopic surgeries are expensive, and not all countries have the equipment. Could be a class, or even dead guy. The “hook” is pulling on the median nerve, and directly above, the thinner white layer, the pain source, severed transverse ligament. Most complicated cases open you up like this, and usualy, after the endoscopic attempt failed to compleatly sever the lig.

      1. i’m a surgeons first assistant and I have done more carpal tunnel release surgeries that I could ever count. A carpal tunnel is never done endoscopically because Endoscopic surgeries are done in areas of the body where you can fit a scope (camera) and generally a minimum of 2 other incision portals for your endoscopic instruments. They do endoscopic surgeries in mainly 2 areas: the abdomen and large joints. This to me looks nothing like a carpal tunnel repair. It’s performed in the wrist with a tournequet causing all blood flow to be blocked.This is done to help identify the complicated anatomy and a major nerve runs parallel to the tendon and looks identical, only a surgeons expertise can tell the difference. Even with needing to extend the incision in a carpal tunnel surgery the tissue would be pink and void of bloodflow. You don’t know what you’re talking about so stop pretending. Endoscopic.. I LOL’d

        1. Sorry bud, hit your field guide books again! One, I never said that THIS was an endoscopic or arthoscopic procedure. Obviously open. Secondly, ECTR, endoscopic carpal tunnel release, is and has been a common surgery since the early 90’s. In fact, it is much better than open surgegry because it doesn’t require cutting through the Palmar aponeurosis, resulting in a quicker recovery, which is also viewable above. ECTR incisions (2) are commonly less than 1 cm, opposed to the 2-3 inch as shown. I am almost certain I have even heard of distal singe incision CTR procedures. I am not sure where your going with the tourniquet, yes you would need a cuff for either. If you are a SFA I hope I never wind up in your hospital. I also must clear up from prior…..endo surgeries are not all that expensive, but only if the hospital is somewhere in the world that has access to supplies and training.

  1. Looks like surgery for CTS (Carpal Tunnel Syndrome)…I remember when I first found out I had CTS in both hands, I looked up some images of the surgery and was near in tears for fear that that could be MY palm.. Regardless, I’m sure he’ll feel better when it’s all said and done. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I had a VERY similar injury in which I severed 5 flexor tendons (There are 2 in each finger), 2 arteries & 2 and a half nerves ( the nerve was cut on one side of the finger but not the other).
    I think the guys who put my hand back together (headed by Dr. Lam, a ethnic chinese surgeon working at the university hospital of South Manchester, Wythenshawe, UK. God Bless you Sir) put the whole damn lot back together & it didn’t cost me a penny! I wonder how much I would have had to pay for an op like this if I had to pay for it? Truama, if you see this then maybe you could tell me?
    The side of the hand on which the nerves were severed feels weird, but I have full use of my hand as if it never happened. 5 & a half hours of microsurgery & it’s like brand new. Amazing! The really strange thing was that the injury never actually hurt? Weird!!!

    1. According to the AOSS, surgical treatment is around $3000 for CTS surgery. Also depends on complexity, whether done endoscopically or open surgery and whether local or general anaesthesia is used

    1. My mother-in-law has severe RA and had to have surgery to fuse her thumb into one place so that she could hold a soda can with one hand. Her recovery wasn’t fun either. I feel for you on that one.

  3. wow…my girlfriend had a similar surgery about 4 years ago. she slashed all her finger tendoms. she almost lost her hand but after 2 surgeries she is ok. well she cant totally move 2 fingers, and feels pain with the cold weather but i think its better than losing a hand…

  4. On this note of response I have to figure out how to get my moms x-rays of her hand. She has metal rods in the tips of all her fingers on her left hand. As warriors the Native Americans rocked but their genes suck ass. I so glad I was adopted so I didnt get the genes my grandfather passed.

  5. This looks to me to be similar to carpal tunnel surgery but i also question that since i have had the surgery and the incision in this picture is way larger than the one i received on my hands are drastically smaller than this. Maybe this was done by surgeons who are not that great at what they do i don’t know but what i do know is the white tendon looking thing that the surgery tool is holding is the nerve not a tendon and what happens with carpal tunnel is the nerve u see in this picture is actually covered with a muscle that lies horizontally over that nerve and with ppl who use their hands a lot that muscle then becomes enlarged which in turn starts to crush the nerve under it which can and is extremely debilitating and painful so surgeons go in cut the muscle at the tendon relieve the pressure at the nerve then reattache the muscle tendon to the bone.
