Should i be concerned if my 4yrs old baby got her left hand fractured above elbow & plastered. What remedy to avoid infection & odour?

Should i be concerned if my 4yrs old baby got her left hand fractured above elbow & plastered. What remedy to avoid infection & odour?

Ensure the cast does: Not get wet, to avoid maceration of the skin. These are usually close injuries (the skin is broken over the fx site), so chances would be very rare. If she starts to scratch due to itching, give her some phenergan, (promethazine) to avoid scratching. Don't allow her to scratch inside the cast with a pen/pencil or something else, as she can then get infected. I use a posterior splint, so arm can be cleaned/dried. ...Read more

A 28 year-old man wishes to know if a tendon transfer is the only option for a wrist drop after a humerus fracture.....?

A 28 year-old man wishes to know if a tendon transfer is the only option for a wrist drop after a humerus fracture.....?

It depends: Sounds like you might have a radial nerve injury after a humerus fracture which unfortunately can be relatively common. Is it a post op nerve palsy? or was no surgery done to fix the humerus. How long has it been? If its been >6 weeks, an EMG can be helpful to see if there is any re-inervation. Make sure you are doing at least passive range of motion to avoid stiffness. We can set up a consult. ...Read more
