Re: Minor incised traumatic laceration
30 October 2012
Excellent article, but for one quibble - although the article acknowledges that it isn't always easy to tell the difference between a laceration and an incised wound, I believe that the title is unfortunately misleading. The described injury would seem to most probably be an incised wound (that is, a wound defect due to a cutting action, or contact with a sharp surface) and NOT a laceration (that is, the tearing of a surface due to the effects of blunt force contact).
