What prognosis is advisable after accidental electrocution leading to the inability to moving a hand?
Attached is the scan image of x-ray for your reference. Please advise.
We need to exclude a nerve injury.
I have noted your clinical details. Based on this, we need to exclude nerve injury affecting your left hand. For this, a clinical examination by a neurologist should be followed by a nerve conduction studies (NCV). Electric shock may cause damage of peripheral nerves of hand.
I also want to reassure you that X-rays do not show any fracture.
I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.
Wishing you good health,
Dr Sudhir Kumar
