|For 2 weeks we provided sterile redressing and edema control after a fasciotomy post compression syndrome.|
|The Static Splint
A custom splint provided the correct support for the acute stage of healing, removed stress from the forearm flexors and placed the lumbricals in a position of their best mechanical advantage.
The patient had gotten his dressing wet and an open area formed at the proximal graft.
|Careful wound care ensured excellent graft closure.|
|Scar management after the wound has healed.|
|An otoform scar conformer was used in conjunction with scar remodeling techniques.|
After his wound was closed, the patient was provided graded functional tasks and work simulation.
