In brief: Do you mean treated?

If your question is treatment of hand laceration without stitches, the answer is yes.
There are small lacerations you can treat by splnting with steristrips.Sometimes hand laceration will present 2- 3 days later when it may not be wise to close the wound by stitches which is better to treat as an open wound and let it heal by granulation tissue, of course which will take longer to heal and one will h.
