What causes gang green?



  1. 0 Votes

    It occurs when a certain part of the body loses blood flow as a result of infection, vascular disease or a severe injury.  There are two types of gangrene: dry gangrene and wet gangrene. Dry gangrene, less detrimental than wet is forms when blood flow in the arteries is limited to a certain area of the body, usually the extremities, like toes and fingers. The affected tissues will become cold and dry out, eventually falling or peeling off once it completely dies. Moist gangrene more often forms at the site of an infected or improperly treated wound. Bacterial infection will occur cutting off blood flow and the gangrene will continue to move up the tissues and muscles if not treated properly or removed.
