Ortho Trauma Wounds

An orthopedic trauma wound is a wound that occurs in response to hard and/or soft tissue trauma, including injuries to bone, muscle, ligament and tendons, as well as spinal cord injuries.

About Ortho Trauma Wounds

All forms of orthopedic trauma put patients at increased risk for infection. However, open fractures (fractures in which the skin is broken) put patients at even higher risk for infection. Wound and bone infections can be disabling for patients because they can delay or prevent healing.
