Abstract provided by Publisher
 
High-pressure injection injury (HPII) is a rare severe hand trauma associated with high rates of complications and amputations of the peripheral parts of the fingers and permanent hand dysfunction. Early detection and treatment are crucial as any delay may result in a considerable functional deficit of the affected limb or amputation. The rate of amputation following HPII is 48%. This case report aims mainly to present the problem of HPII and general standards of management of such injuries. The routine use of supportive treatment in hyperbaric chambers, in the absence of contraindications, is also encouraged.
