The work of a fasciotomy... Lovely, I remember seeing pics of this guys arm after skin grafts etc, his arm was never the same, lost alot of muscle tissue and mobility.

That's an awesome picture, you can see the muscles and everything. Nice

At first glance I didn't see that the arm was attached to someone still.

I assume those two roun brown circles on his hands is where the snake got him?

If so, those are big and had to be a monster of a rattlesnake?

He didn't lose his arm, hand or anything like that.

He did have skin grafts, but the first grafts were a bugger up if I remember correctly (might've been a different case) because they put on the graft during this surgery, the venom then just continued to eat away at the new skin, they then did others which took. But like I said, his arm looked horrible and lost alot of use from his arm.

That isn't the result of the cytotoxic venom. It's the result of a doctor perfoming a fasciotomy to, I guess in their heads relieve the pressure from the swelling and tissue being eaten away, which is caused by the cytotoxic venom.

Quite an amazing story:

Glad the results were so good in the end, it's really amazing what the Doctors are capable of doing in this day and age!
