Remeber the Adam's Family tv show and the "character" Thing? The ambulatory hand that lived in a box? I recently saw a patient who had severed his hand cleanly from his arm. He managed to tourniquet the bleeding stump and come to the ED. When we got the hand it looked just like Thing... was held in the "number one" position and had a wedding ring still on. I believe the hand surgeons down the road were able to reattach it and save the man's livelihood.
