Tips of the trade #32. Gradual closure of fasciotomy wounds.
A technique of gradual closure of fasciotomy wounds is presented. At the time of fasciotomy, staples are placed at the edge of the fasciotomy wound. A large nylon suture is threaded through the staples in a pattern similar to the lacing of a shoe. Postoperatively, this suture is tightened daily; this results in gradual closure of the wounds without further surgery.
