UPDATE: Tiger Undergoes Complicated Surgery
The emergency surgery carried out on Tiger Woods after his horrific car crash in Los Angeles has been reported as a very lengthy procedure.
The superstar golfer underwent “significant orthopaedic injuries to his right lower extremity”.
In a statement, Dr Anish Mahajan (pictured) of Harbor-UCLA Medical Centre revealed that Tiger had multiple “open fractures” to his lower right leg, and he had a rod placed in his tibia and screws and pins inserted in his foot and ankle during an emergency surgery.
“Comminuted open fractures affecting both the upper and lower portions of the tibia and fibula bones were stabilized by inserting a rod into the tibia,” said Mahajan, the chief medical officer and interim CEO at Harbor-UCLA.
A comminuted fracture means the bone is broken into more than two pieces; open means a break in the skin.
“Additional injuries to the bones of the foot and ankle were stabilized with a combination of screws and pins. Trauma to the muscle and soft-tissue of the leg required surgical release of the covering of the muscles to relieve pressure due to swelling,” Mahajan
