Figure Legend: Finger bandages must be applied carefully to avoid
circulatory compromise. This patient had a sharp lateral dorsal oblique laceration of the fingertip
with soft tissue loss. This was dressed with an elastic wrap in the emergency room. The dressing was
uncomfortably tight and painful, but was left on for one week according to instructions. Here, 10 days
after injury, the finger is viable, but signs of tight bandaging remain: intradermal bruising,
distal nail bed splinter hemorrhages and a palmar pressure ulcer at a fold in the dressing.
