Procedure Video: Nail Bed Laceration Repair

Do you want to hide when you realize the next patient to be seen has a complex nail bed laceration? Injured fingertips might get triaged to fast track, but nail bed repairs can be time consuming and a little daunting.

They review the medical management, suture technique and post-ED care, including things Dr. Wong would do differently the next time she tackles a similar repair — all in under five minutes!
