Description:

This case is based on the real-life incident of a boy whose arm was bitten off by a bull shark while swimming off the coast of Florida in the summer of 2001. After the boy’s arm was retrieved from the shark’s mouth, it was surgically reattached. The case was developed for use in the laboratory section of a freshman- or sophomore-level introductory human anatomy course that takes a regional approach.  Several similar clinical cases are used in conjunction with each anatomical region as it is dissected.  This particular case study is used during the dissection lab on the upper extremity of the human body.
