A 23 years old male worker in the port area was brought to emergency room with alleged history of trauma from folded Plastic pipe hitting him while unloading it from truck. on examination there is a 3x8 cms through and through laceration over the left cheek region passing through commissure of the oral cavity. It just spared facial artery allowing us to see the pulsations with naked eye. Initial debridement done with betadine cocktail, vermilion match n continuity are created with a stay suture using prolene . intra oral and muscle layers were closed with 4-0 vicryl and skin closure done with 4-0 prolene. As the patient is poor n unaffordable for getting operated under general anesthesia, procedure is done under local anesthesia for about 2 hours. 15 days post operative pics are posted. Asked him to use Mederma cream for further scar reduction. thank you.
