Patient’s fingers and connected tendons pulled out by a drilling incident.

Patient’s fingers and connected tendons pulled out by a drilling incident.

The patient was wearing cotton gloves while operating a drill. He went to reset a drill bit and the drill caught his glove and pulled off his fingertips while simultaneously winding up the attached tendons. Replantation was not possible due to the extent of the injury. The wounds were irrigated and closed by forming stumps.

Why both fingers colour is different? It's a fake news...

The consequence of this injury is not being able to use those fingers at all, right?
