  • When Is Laceration Repair Needed?

    If the cut or wound looks clean, small and shallow, you don’t need medical care. You can take care of the wound with a bandage and antibiotic ointment. However, if there is a deep cut or teat in your skin, muscle, or tissue, you would need laceration repair.
    Laceration repair treatment includes preparing, cleaning, and closing the wound. The wounds or cuts that need medical attention and laceration repair include:

     

    • Exposed bone, tendon, fat, or muscle 
    • Debris and dirt in the wound that isn’t removed even after cleaning
    • Feeling of irritation in the wound
    • Constant bleeding even after applying pressure 
    • Uneven or jagged edges
    • Wound is more than more than 1/4th inch deep 
    • Potential intense scarring 
    • Location of wound in the high stress area, like chest, feet, hands, or joints
    • Caused by contaminated or dirty object 
    Our Dedicated Team Provides Immediate Treatment For At-Risk Wound Care And Laceration Repair

    Understanding The Laceration Repair Process 

    When you reach the hospital, the health care specialist will guide you through the process, which typically includes:

    • Thoroughly assessing the wound to determine whether it needs surgery or not
    • Inquiry about medical history, when and how the wound happened, allergy information, medication you might be taking
    • Discussion on pain tolerance and strategies for laceration repair
    • Explanation of options and the procedures
    • Laceration repair treatment

    The team will also guide you regarding the after-care of the wound treatment to avoid infection and escalate repair.


    Is Anesthesia Needed?
    It will depend on the kind of laceration repair is needed.

    • For minor laceration, local anesthesia is used to numb the surrounding area of the wound
    • For severe laceration, general anesthesia is used to put you to sleep and block the pain

    In other cases, you might not require any anesthesia.


    Potential Side Effects of Laceration Repair
    For laceration repair, your health care specialist will discuss the possible side effects and complications, which might include:

    • Allergic reaction to anesthesia
    • Poor wound closure
    • Scarring
    • Bleeding
    • Infection

    Moreover, you will be provided with proper instructions on taking care of the repair to avoid any complication that could slow down the healing process.
