The Causes of Traumatic Amputation Injuries

Traumatic amputation injuries are not as rare as one might think. There are at least 30,000 new traumatic amputation injuries in the United States every year. Amputation injuries can involve any extremity or limb, including the feet, hands, fingers, legs, toes, or arms.

Here are some of the most common causes of traumatic amputation injuries:

  • Traffic accidents
  • Workplace accidents
  • Accidents involving explosives or firearms
  • Car door accidents
  • Agricultural accidents

Among these listed causes, motor vehicle accidents are the most common cause of traumatic amputation injuries. Although these accidents generally cause the amputation injury itself, the injuries sustained in severe accidents make it medically necessary for a survivor to have a limb or extremity amputated.

A Closer Look at the Statistics

Considering how many new traumatic amputation injuries are suffered every year, it should be no surprise that about 2 million people in the country suffer from limb loss, 25% of which were caused by traumatic accidents.

Here are some other statistics to consider:

  • About 70% of all traumatic amputation injuries involve the body’s upper limbs
  • Every year, about 600 children suffer from lawnmower-related traumatic amputation injuries in the United States
  • Most traumatic amputation injury victims are between 15 and 40 years of age
  • Almost 80% of all traumatic amputation injury victims are male
  • The most common type of traumatic amputation injury is the loss of one or more fingers or a partial hand amputation

Coping with the Effects of a Traumatic Amputation Injury

For injuries involving the loss of a limb, such as an arm or leg, most patients will need to become accustomed to using a prosthetic. It can potentially take months or years’ worth of physical therapy for a patient to comfortably use a prosthetic limb, depending on whether the injury occurred below or above the joint.

Moreover, depression is often a frequent concern for traumatic amputation injury victims, especially since their lifestyle will often change due to this great loss.
