First aid

Nail burst


The nail is out of its matrix and comes off. It must absolutely be put back in place so as not to hinder a good subsequent growth.
The intervention is done under general anesthesia of short duration.
The bandage may hinder your child the first days, especially as surgeons have the rule to also imprison the neighboring fingers of the damaged finger. If your child sucks his thumb, do not hesitate to specify it.
