Traumatic limb wound management represents a common and challenging health problem. Conservative treatment can be a good option when surgery fails or surgical reconstruction is planned. Wound healing is a complex process that involves several factors and can be delayed if wound details are not noticed. So, expert healthcare professionals should take care of these delicate patients to obtain satisfactory outcomes in terms of cosmesis and functionality of the residual scar. Thanks to the description of three patients with traumatic limb injuries, this article emphasizes the importance of respecting what we call the three golden rules of wound management: correct cleaning of the wound, its accurate inspection and choose the appropriate dressing according to the wound aspect.

Abstract

Traumatic limb wound management represents a common and challenging health problem. Conservative treatment can be a good option when surgery fails or surgical reconstruction is planned. Wound healing is a complex process that involves several factors and can be delayed if wound details are not noticed. So, expert healthcare professionals should take care of these delicate patients to obtain satisfactory outcomes in terms of cosmesis and functionality of the residual scar. Thanks to the description of three patients with traumatic limb injuries, this article emphasizes the importance of respecting what we call the three golden rules of wound management: correct cleaning of the wound, its accurate inspection and choose the appropriate dressing according to the wound aspect.
