Figure 7.53. Gangrene resulting in amputation of the right arm following an infusion of 10% dextrose in the right radial artery.

Figure 7.54. This infant developed obstruction to the circulation of the distal right forearm and hand following attempts at right radial artery catheterization. Subsequently, a cut-down was placed in the right brachial artery, resulting from thrombosis. Note the white discoloration and atrophy of the hand and distal forearm with gangrene of the distal fingertips. A sharp demarcation line separated the normal from the abnormal circulation.
