Traumatic lower limb degloving injury – the role of the Surgeon
After attending this session, persons will be able to:
- Diagnose and appreciate the surgical management of degloving injuries
Degloving soft-tissue injuries are serious and debilitating conditions. Deciding on the most appropriate treatment can be difficult and may result in significant complications such as infection and delayed wound healing.
This plenary session will present the role of the surgeon when faced with a patient with a lower limb degloving injury and the decisions they make to optimise limb preservation. The challenges faced Post operatively will then be discussed by a clinical nurse specialist. The impact on patients’ outcomes can be underestimated and possibly not fully understood, a patient who has experienced a traumatic degloving injury will share her story and the physical and psychological impact on her life.
