Semi-occlusive dressing as non-operative treatment vs. operative treatment for fingertip amputations: a retrospective cohort study

Treatment of fingertip amputations have demonstrated good outcomes with both surgical and non-surgical management. This study is a retrospective cohort using a review of medical records and a dedicated database to compare and evaluate the outcomes of managing fingertip amputations with non-surgical treatment via semi-occlusive dressing or surgical treatment. Results show that there is no significant association between type of treatment and nail deformity, discoloration and tinel’s sign. Range of motion was seen to be better for patients treated with surgery, but the difference is not statistically significant. Treatment with semi- occlusive dressing shows promising results possibility of outpatient treatment for a slightly longer duration until healing.
