Because of the fragile nature of growing bones and joints, children are often at an increased risk of experiencing injuries such as a fracture, sprain or dislocation. Children are also usually more active than adults and likely to experience injuries or accidents during physical activity.
Fortunately, many of these injuries tend to heal easier in children because their bones are strong and flexible, allowing your child to quickly return to normal growth and activity with little to no long-term damage. Conservative treatment such as casting, rest and immobilization are often effective in treating these injuries.
A laceration, also known as a cut, is an injury that occurs when a wound breaks through the skin. The laceration may be superficial or affect tissues below the skin such as tendons, muscles or bone. Minor lacerations are often short and shallow cuts, but they may bleed and be at risk for infection.
The main goal of laceration repair is to stop the bleeding and stabilize the patient if faint. Laceration repair may include: Cleaning and preparing the wound, stitches to seal the wound, staples to seal the wound, adhesive strips. Follow up care may be required to remove the closure material and monitor the healing process. Most minor lacerations heal successfully with no complications.
