To make a long story short. While helping a junior resident put in a femoral traction pin, it ended up going through my 2nd web space through and through. Thank goodness he didn’t have Hep C or HIV, and thank God it didn’t get one of my digital nerves or fracture my proximal phalanx. Ortho can be rough some times, lol.
