Abstract

Costs and benefits of the repair in Emergency Room of skin lacerations by tissue adhesive in children are reported. In 1987-88 2150 children under 16 were referred to our Institute because of lacerations. About one of three of them needed repair by subcutaneous suture; in the others, sutures or sterile stripes or adhesive tissue could be employed. Adhesive tissue use increased significantly during 1988 because of its advantages: no need of local anesthesia, syringes, sterile suture instruments and dressing materials; no further dressing; no suffering of children during the treatment; good aesthetic results. Now it is the first choice treatment of the lacerations in which subcutaneous suture is not necessary. Moreover this technique is cheap, and reduced significantly 1988 costs for laceration repair in our department.
