pneumatic tire injury
Definition: separation of the skin and subcutaneous tissue from the underlying fascia, classically occurring when an extremity is crushed and rolled over by the tire of a vehicle; however, it may be incurred through other mechanisms that produce shear forces; similar to a degloving injury, except that the skin and subcutaneous tissue layers remain in continuity.
