Example text

Direct observation of the periosteum and skull is frequently possible. Cotton-tipped swabs can be used to assist in probing, especially in smaller lacerations. Simple, small scalp lacerations that are not grossly contaminated, are not actively bleeding, and have not interrupted the galea may be closed using the hair-tie technique. An adequate length of hair from opposite sides of the wound is necessary. The caregiver twists the hair strands on both sides of the suture line, pulls them across the wound, and knots them (the number of knots should be equal to the number of stitches that normally would have been used in the care of this wound).

Wound cleansing is painful, and often the adequacy of anesthesia can be assessed during irrigation. Cleansing and irrigation techniques are the same for children and adults and are described fully in Chapter 7. 26,27 This preparation provides anesthesia without causing the discomfort associated with an injection and does not distort the local anatomy. Another potential advantage that we have noted is that we need to use physical restraints less often when we use LET. This solution should not be used in areas of end artery flow, such as fingers, toes, and ears.

These scars more commonly tend to be located on the ears, upper extremities, lower abdomen, and sternum. Eventual outcome and treatment depend on early recognition of keloid formation and prompt therapy. Hypertrophic scars also have excessive bulk, but in contrast to keloids, they are confined to the original borders of the wound (Fig. 4-8). They tend to occur in areas of tissue stress, such as flexion creases across joints. The cause of this excessive scar response is not known. Physical therapy and splinting can be used during healing in patients who have a history of hypertrophic scarring.
