Abstract

Twenty-nine patients with self-inflicted wrist slash seen in consultation from 1970 through 1974 revealed 25 nerve and 70 tendon injuries. The average age, sex distribution, and psychiatric status generally followed previously reported series of suicide attempts. A major finding was the low patient response to surgical and psychiatric followup. Intensified efforts to improve followup and primary repair of damaged structures are recommended.
