Since we have never encountered the situation where an equinus deformity makes walking impossible (even though orthoses may be required for walking), and since an orthosis can fulfill all the therapeutic goals only in this position, we always place the foot in the orthosis in an equinus position as much as required.

Power dermatomes may be more precise in depth setting but can dull rapidly and become clogged with debris cheap avalide 162.5mg fast delivery. Changing blades is time-consuming and tedious, and this time is crucial while the patient continues to bleed. Proper skin tension above and below the area to be excised is necessary in order to use a manual dermatome properly. Broad slices are taken with the knife and the back of the instrument is then used to wipe the area to inspect the bed. If the bed does not bleed briskly, another slice of the same depth is taken. Healthy dermis appears white and shiny, therefore if the area is dull and gray or if clotted blood vessels are seen, the excision needs to be carried deeper. As excision continues to the deeper layers of the dermis and into fat, vessels with pulsatile flow may be transected. Any fat that has brownish discoloration 140 Heimbach and Faucher FIGURE 1 Use of Watson blade for burn excision FIGURE 2 Use of Goulian blade for burn excision. Principles of Burn Surgery 141 or bloodstaining will not support a skin graft and needs to be excised. Pulsatile blood vessels are controlled with electrocautery and the wound is then covered with a Telfa dressing soaked in 1:10,000 epinephrine solution before the surgeon moves on to the next area. The Telfa dressing is applied cellophane- side down to minimize adherence to the wound, with removal this may stimulate bleeding that was under control. The outer wraps are carefully removed and the Telfa dressing is removed after being soaked in saline. Summarized Below are several points about the use of epinephrine to stop bleeding: Substantial amounts of epinephrine are absorbed systemically from the wound. We have measured blood levels as high as 4,000 g/dl 100 ml after a major excision.
