In order for orthopaedic and trauma surgeons to address these issues comprehensively without being plastic surgeons themselves, a certain level of interdisciplinary understanding has to be acquired.

  • Emergency department management
  • Adequate debridement and wound conditioning
  • Options and choice of wound closure and coverage
