While trying to burn some trash, a 60-year-old male, who was not a flap candidate due to his age and comorbidities, set his lower right leg on fire. He was taken to the ICU, then into surgery. The man’s wound over his tibia was deep, with exposed tendon and tibia. Dr. Hodge treated the patient and he was ultimately discharged.
But that wasn’t the end of the story. Learn how Dr. Hodge adjusted her treatment when her patient returned to the hospital with an infection and his leg covered with plastic wrap.
In this case-specific webinar, Dr. Hodge discusses:
- How and why she avoided below knee amputation
- What other technologies she relied on for wound salvage
- How she went from failure to closure in this complex case
