Open landmine foot injury Volume 26, issue 2, Juin 2010

Authors

We present the case of a young soldier admitted in emergency to a hospital with dangerous right foot injury. In primary surgical treatment, amputation of leg was discussed because of the presence of severe bone and soft tissue infection. However, excision of dead tissue and frequent rinsing of the wound in the operating room and antibiotic therapy may save the limb. The problem of stump covering was resolved by fasciocutaneous flap.
