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
