Crush, guillotine and avulsion mechanisms are three of the most common forms of traumatic amputation. Crush injuries are the most common and can result in significant tissue damage and injury. Because of the injury associated with crush mechanisms, amputations resulting from these forces are less likely to be successfully reattached. In contrast, guillotine injuries involve sharp edges, resulting in less tissue disruption. As a result, body parts that are amputated by guillotine forces are likely to have better reattachment and recovery outcomes.
I realize this is an old post and I don’t know how many people will still read this but I’m writing this to benefit anyone who still does. I have read all the comments and can’t believe that in so many people not one of you know the real cause and treatment for eczema. Eczema is caused by a sick digestive system and malfunctioning gut. Undigested foods and harmful bacteria leak out of the gut and into the bloodstream causing eczema as well as ., ., autism, asthma, schizophrenia, anxiety, and more. Creams and topical treatment will help relieve the burn and itch for a short while but the only way to truly heal eczema forever is by following a special gut healing diet. The GAPS diet is so far the only diet with an amazing success rate for treating and healing all of the above. Google it, go to their website, and read the book. It will change your life forever.
Disclaimer: I am in no way affiliated to anything GAPS related. I just suffered immensely with my daughter before finding out about this healing diet and I’d love to share my success story with the world.
If the neurologic examination is unrevealing, a more general physical examination, searching for extramuscular signs, is warranted ( Table 6 5 , 7 – 15 , 17 , 18 , 21 , 24 – 27 , 34 , 36 , 38 ) . Mental status testing may reveal changes suggestive of a myopathy-inducing electrolyte disorder (calcium or magnesium) or an arrest of mental development as occurs in genetic myopathies. 25 , 29 The cardiovascular assessment may elicit changes consistent with a cardiomyopathy—a nonspecific consequence of many myopathy-inducing disorders—or a pericarditis, as occurs with some of the infectious and rheumatologic causes of muscle weakness. 5 , 7 , 8 , 9 , 18 , 21 , 24 , 25 , 29 , 36 , 38
