High-pressure injection injuries to the hand are often associated with severe morbidity, and should be considered surgical emergencies. The severity of these injuries is due to vascular compromise and the inflammatory nature of the material injected. Recommended treatment generally involves surgical decompression and meticulous removal of foreign material if a disastrous outcome is to be avoided.
