Digital ischemia in the neonate following intravenous therapy.

Abstract

Ischemia and gangrene in the hand can result from attempted intravenous cannulation in the neonate. This disastrous complication can be avoided with an understanding of the blood supply of the hand. Once ischemia occurs, amputation is the usual end result, but it may be averted by early diagnosis and treatment.
