Objective. To determine the effectiveness of a tissue adhesive, Histoacryl Blue (HAB), for laceration repair in children.. Design. Prospective, randomized clinical trial.. Setting. A tertiary care pediatric emergency center at Egleston Childrens Hospital.. Participants. Children who presented for laceration repair between October 1994 and February 1995 were prospectively evaluated. Patients less than 1 or greater than 18 years of age, those with lacerations greater than 5 cm, and those with lacerations located on the eyelids, ears, nose, lips, hands, feet, joints, or perineum were excluded.. Interventions. Following consent and routine wound management, including subcutaneous closure when deemed necessary, patients were randomized to receive skin sutures or HAB for cutaneous closure.. Methods. Length of time required for laceration repair was recorded. Parental perception of the pain experienced by their child was assessed using a visual analogue scale. Photographic documentation of scar ...
Over the years Ive seen a number of trauma professionals, both surgeons and emergency physicians, order liver transaminases (SGOT, SGPT) and bilirubin in patients with liver laceration. Ive never been clear on why, so I decided to check it out. As it turns out, this is another one of those "old habits die hard" phenomena.. Liver lacerations, by definition, are disruptions of the liver parenchyma. Liver tissue and bile ducts of various size are both injured. Is it reasonable to expect that liver function tests would be elevated? A review of the literature follows the typical pattern. Old studies with very few patients.. From personal hands-on observations, the liver tissue itself tears easily, but the ducts are a lot tougher. It is fairly common to see small, intact ducts bridging small tears in the substance of the liver. However, larger injuries can certainly disrupt major ducts, leading to major problems. But Ive never seen obstructive problems develop from this injury.. A number of papers ...
Skin laceration repair is an important skill in family medicine. Sutures, tissue adhesives, staples, and skin-closure tapes are options in the outpatient setting. Physicians should be familiar with various suturing techniques, including simple, running, and half-buried mattress (corner) sutures. Although suturing is the preferred method for laceration repair, tissue adhesives are similar in patient satisfaction, infection rates, and scarring risk in low skin-tension areas and may be more cost-effective. The tissue adhesive hair apposition technique also is effective in repairing scalp lacerations. The sting of local anesthesia injections can be lessened by using smaller gauge needles, administering the injection slowly, and warming or buffering the solution. Studies have shown that tap water is safe to use for irrigation, that white petrolatum ointment is as effective as antibiotic ointment in postprocedure care, and that wetting the wound as early as 12 hours after repair does not increase the risk of
Scalp lacerations are a common injury. Clinical evaluation should identify associated serious head injury, laceration of the galea, or bony defect of the skull. After hemostasis is achieved and the wound is irrigated, scalp lacerations are typically

Background: Obstetric perineal lacerations are common after vaginal birth. The degree of obstetric perineal laceration is defined by the extent of tissue involved in the laceration. When a perineal laceration has occurred after vaginal delivery, the examination for correct diagnostics is essential before primary suturing. Standard immediate postpartum care is an inspection and palpation of the obstetric perineal laceration. The aim of this thesis was to explore the diagnostics of obstetric perineal lacerations, and to examine how the methods of bidigital perineal palpation and transperineal ultrasound postpartum can contribute to the clinical diagnostic decisions before primary repair. Material and Methods: Study I is a methodological study of transperineal ultrasound of the anovaginal distance. The learning curve and inter-observer agreement of the method is studied between three examiners in an outpatient gynaecological setting. Study II is a prospective observational study of 150 primiparous ...

Q: Dr Eppley, I came across this page while doing research on scars. My 6 yr old daughter had a traumatic injury to her left cheek about three wks ago. A face laceration in the shape of an anchor, right in the front of her cheek. As her parent I was and still am very upset that this has happened to her. Not only for cosmetic reasons but Im worried about her self esteem later on. Im hoping it will heal better than I can imagine. Currently we have seen two plastic surgeons and they had me in tears with their negativity. I was wondering if you could look at her picture and have some advice. When or if the time comes, we plan on doing what we can for her. Thank you for your time and I hope to hear from you with your expertise.. A: I obviously would have to see pictures of your daughters scars before rendering an opinion. But having taken care of many hundreds of facial lacerations to children over the years, what often looks very discouraging and grim early on can go on to heal, either just by ...
Injuries to the leg and foot account for about 13% of traumatic wounds evaluated in the ED, distributed roughly into a third each for the foot, calf, and knee and thigh regions.1 Traumatic wounds to the foot can be sustained in a variety of ways, from simple plantar puncture wounds to catastrophic lawn mower injuries. The leg or foot is commonly injured in sports and recreational activities.2 Urban children can sustain foot lacerations while playing in water from fire hydrants, mostly due to stepping on broken glass.3 Bicycle spoke injuries result in complex lacerations with marked surrounding abrasions and even tissue loss, usually occurring over the Achilles tendon area.4 Metal lawn and garden edging is associated with plantar and knee lacerations.5 Home exercise equipment, particularly exercise bikes and treadmills, are a cause of lower extremity lacerations, fractures, and dislocations in children.6 Hockey skates are associated with boot-top injuries; typically these consist of a small ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - The value of prophylactic antibiotics for simple lacerations. AU - Thirlby, R. C.. AU - Blair, A. J.. AU - Thal, E. R.. PY - 1983/1/1. Y1 - 1983/1/1. N2 - The use of prophylactic antibiotics as an adjunct to suture closure of simple lacerations is common; however, little data exist to support this practice. Orally administered antibiotics are routinely given after wound closure. This prophylactic antibiotic regimen violates an established surgical principle, namely, the early use of antibiotics to establish adequate preoperative tissue levels. Despite this knowledge, antibiotics continue to be prescribed for patients with simple lacerations. Drug cost, patient compliance, the risk of allergy and bacterial resistance are additional considerations. For these reasons, this study was undertaken to determine the efficacy of antibiotic prophylaxis as practiced in many communities today.. AB - The use of prophylactic antibiotics as an adjunct to suture closure of simple lacerations is ...

Lacerations rank as the most common pediatric injury that requires a physician evaluation.1-5 Glass is a frequent cause of wounds in patients who present to an emergency department. Armstrong and Molyneux observed that 5% of all injuries at their hospital in Liverpool, England, were caused by glass and that most glass related injuries occurred on the street.6 Both in England and the US, broken bottle glass has been reported to be the leading cause of lacerations, accounting for 15-27% of all lacerations seen in an urban emergency department.1, 6 However, while many studies have analyzed laceration injuries using emergency department data,1, 6-11 little is known about the out-of-hospital incidence or cause of lacerations in urban communities.. Lacerations due to glass can result in several health problems. Fragments of glass in a wound may lead to persistent pain, delayed healing, increased scarring, neuropraxis, and infection.12-16 In a prospective study of 415 children with cleaned and sutured ...
Traumatic wounds have traditionally been closed with sutures. Recent trials comparing the use of sutures with tissue adhesives have demonstrated similar cosmetic outcomes. To date, all previous studies have compared outcomes between sutures and tissue adhesives at three months after wound closure. Quinn and associates compared traumatic lacerations treated with octylcyanoacrylate, a tissue adhesive recently labeled for this use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, with lacerations repaired with sutures.. The one-year study included 135 adult patients with traumatic lacerations requiring repair on the face, torso or extremities. Contaminated wounds, scalp or ear lacerations, and extremity lacerations in patients with diabetes or chronic steroid use constituted exclusion criteria. Wounds requiring debridement or deep suturing were first treated in accordance with the standard practice of the treating physician. Only at the time of skin closure were the lacerations randomized to either closure ...
Lacerations are a common occurrence. A skin wound can be caused by either blunt or sharp trauma; and should be cared for quickly to optimize the healing process. First aid, veterinarian consultation or treatment, and prescribed wound care are all important factors in laceration repair.. When an owner encounters a wound on their horse, they should remember three goals of first aid, which are: preventing further injury, slowing blood loss, and minimizing contamination. Horses are often very excitable after being hurt so getting them into a quiet environment such as a dark stall is important. Even though it would be rare for a horse to bleed to death from a skin wound, many seem to bleed profusely. Applying a clean, dry dressing with moderate pressure can control most of these lacerations. The use of a tourniquet above leg wounds is discouraged by most veterinarians, due to improper application that can do more harm than good. If a laceration is contaminated by soil, washing the wound lightly with ...

No evidence exists to indicate which lacerations should be sutured and which should be managed conservatively. However, there is a general consensus that the main indications for immediate management are uncontrollable haemorrhage, airway compromise and the presence of a significant segment of severed tongue or of a segment at the verge of being severed. It is accepted that minor lacerations of the tongue will heal readily with no impairment of tongue function. There are no PRCTs that address this three part question suggesting that further research is necessary ...
