pneumatic tire injury

pneu·mat·ic tire in·ju·ry

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.
