Stump left after the amputation of the arm of a 27 year old man. The man was injured in a road traffic accident. Amputation is performed when a limb is so badly damaged that it is beyond repair. The scar seen on the man's back at upper right is where a section of his skin was taken to graft onto another injury on his scalp. See image M336/057 for a detailed view of that scar, and M336/056 for a view of the graft on his scalp.
