Degloving Leg or Arm Injury Claim
A degloving is a type injury in which an extensive section of skin is completely
torn off the underlying tissue, severing its blood supply. It is named for the process
of removing a glove. Typically, degloving injuries affect the arms and legs. Degloving
injuries invariably require major surgical interventions.
Treatment options include replantation or revascularization of the degloved skins,
or when these are not possible, skin grafts or skin flaps. Post-operative physiotherapy
is of particular importance for degloving injuries involving the hand.
