A Stand for Amputated Extremities

More details in our book Grossing Bones: Principles, Techniques, and Instruments available now on Amazon.com.

A plastic 32 oz bucket with two semicircular cuts of different depth at opposite sides can be used as a supportive stand for amputated legs, feet or arms while processing them as surgical specimens (vessels dissection, bone cutting, etc.). The bucket is filled with water to make the stand stable. The contrivance keeps the grossing table cleaner and makes the work safer.
