Abstract
Traumatic forequarter amputation is an extremely rare and life-threatening injury. It is caused by blunt trauma or tremendous traction force, and the prognosis is very poor because of the involvement of massive associated injury. Traumatic forequarter amputation has been rarely reported in the English language clinical literature, but has never been reported in Korea. We report a case of traumatic forequarter amputation caused by a conveyor belt that was treated with emergency resuscitation and surgery, with an accompanying review of the literature.
Key Words: Forequarter amputation; Traumatic
