that HPI injuries to the hand are relatively common, given the widespread use of pressure machinery. Previous Next: Prognosis HPI injuries often manifest as innocuous lesions on the fingertip of a patient's nondominant hand. Depending on the substance involved, these injuries may follow a benign clinical course (for air and clean water) or may be deceptively destructive and lead to soft-tissue necrosis and amputation (for grease and paint). Proper triage and management of HPI injuries of the hand (...) , leading to high amputation rates.
