How to Avoid Bandage Complications

Minor complications such as redness, edema and abrasions are common after placement of a bandage. But few studies are dedicated to severe complications such as ischemia, open wounds and necrosis.

A British team 1 reported serious complications in 11 patients (nine dogs and two cats) after a variety of bandages were applied. Nine patients required surgical debridement, five received a skin graft, three had one or several toes amputated, and one needed carpal arthrodesis.

Even worse: two patients had a leg amputated and two others died.

The main problem here is ischemia. Ischemic lesions are caused by a bandage that is too tight, a lack of cotton padding around pressure points and secondary tissue edema. To avoid such embarrassing complications, the recommendation is:

  • Use generous cotton padding.
    .
  • Leave toes 3 and 4 visible so you and the owner can assess swelling.
