Meshed adhesive tape for the treatment of crushed fingers in children.

Abstract

Over 300 children a year are treated at the Royal Aberdeen Children's Hospital for crushed finger tips. We estimate that 5.8% of children, under 13 years of age, suffer this injury, mainly in domestic (72.5%) or car doors (12%). The treatment of partial avulsions of pulp with nail dislocation is described.
