LIROZ IMAZ, Ana et al. Degloving injuries: pretibial laceration in times of COVID-19 pandemic: approach and difficulties detected. Gerokomos [online]. 2021, vol.32, n.4, pp.269-273.  Epub 17-Ene-2022. ISSN 1134-928X.

Degloving Injuries are injuries caused by tears or traction movements that mainly affect lower members of seniors. They can affect superficial layers of the skin and become complicated by bruises that cause deeper lesions. They have various treatments, as they do not have sufficient scientific evidence. We present the case of an 81-year-old woman who has a skin tear in the lower right limb. The objective is to recount the obstacles encountered in treatment during the COVID-19 pandemic and variability in treatment. It describes the plan of care executed, as well as the different dressings used until the epithelial closure. The results determine a delay in wound epithelialization.

Palabras clave : Degloving Injuries; COVID-19; nursing care.
