Abstract

Management of severe limb trauma continues to challenge surgeons. Suitable treatment should be individualised for each patient, taking into consideration not only the wound extremity but also the associated injuries, age and socioeconomic status of the patient with the goal to recover function and to improve patient quality of life. The aim of this report is to present a severe degloving multiplane lower limb injury case in which a conservative treatment of the wound was performed with negative pressure therapy and dermal substitute, avoiding amputation and restoring limb function.Cigna E, Maruccia M, Sorvillo V, Parisi P, Palumbo F, Onesti MG.
