This video illustrates the treatment for bilateral wrist injuries in a patient who sustained gun shot wounds. Her left median nerve was repaired after it was lacerated by the bullet, and CTM Thick was applied around the repaired nerve to minimize adhesions. Her right distal radius had fractured as well, and was plated at the same time. The IntelliSense drill was used, which prevents the drill bit from plunging, and automatically measures the screw lengths needed. CTM Flow was injected, to minimize swelling and augment healing.
