    Abstract

    Pre-tibial lacerations (PTL) are a relatively common injury,
    affecting the elderly, which has long been recognised
    as requiring specialist hospital intervention, with various
    treatments explored (Crawford & Gipson 1977, Sutton
    & Pritty 1985, Budny et al. 1993, Silk 2001, Bradley 2001).
    There is an increasing clinical question of how best to treat
    PTLs, prevent readmission, address non-healing, reduce
    complications and reduce the burden they pose for primary
    care resources
