Facial trauma due to gas explosion!

Facial trauma due to gas explosion!


Here's a case you don't get to see every day, extensive facial trauma due to a gas explosion! Gas explosions are one of the most fearful accidents that happen due to a gas leak. People suffer from severe injuries that give even skilled surgeons some trouble. Notice that the patient's tongue is severed, the lips and a part of the mandible along with some teeth are detached from place and are being held by the surgeon. Clamps were placed on different areas to stop the bleeding, and a tracheal tube was inserted in order to assist breathing. This patient is alive and underwent a series of reconstructive operations in order to bring both aesthetics and functionality as close as possible to normal.
