A Slippery Slope

What type of surgery was performed? What is occurring in the yellow circle?

Moderator's Response
Carpal tunnel release. Sutures removed. Steri-strips in place. Area in the yellow circle indicates an infected portion of the wound. It is warm to the touch, patient c/o increased pain in the past 24 hours and AROM decreased significantly. Therapist POC: Call the referring physician ASAP.
