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.
    .
  • Educate your client to take proper care of the bandage.
  • Most serious implications occur within 24 to 48 hours after application. If the patient starts to chew or lick a bandage excessively, or is unexpectedly in pain, think “bandage complication.” The patient should be readmitted and the bandage changed.

    Long-term results in this study are only good in four cases out of 11 patients. Among the seven “unhappy” patients, three have ongoing lameness, two had a limb amputation and two died.

    This study is a good reminder that a bandage should not be taken lightly and that client education is cr...
