The management of human bite injuries of the hand

, : The management of human bite injuries of the hand. Injury 27(7): 481-484

Human bites of the hand cause small wounds that are often incorrectly treated as 'minor' injuries. We reviewed the management and outcome of patients with human bite or 'punch' injuries of the hand. Significant morbidity resulted from late presentation and inadequate initial management. We propose a treatment protocol, in which all patients are immediately referred and admitted to hospital for surgical debridement.
