Zusammenfassung

Verletzungen der Haut im Kindes- und Jugendalter sind sehr häufig. Bissverletzungen nehmen allerdings neben Schnittwunden, Platzwunden, Quetschwunden, Schürfwunden oder eingebrachten Fremdkörpern eine Sonderstellung ein: Bisswunden haben ein hohes Infektionsrisiko (65–80 %) und erfordern daher ein rasches und kompetentes chirurgisches Handeln. Im folgenden Kapitel wird daher ausführlich auf die unterschiedlichen Formen von Bissverletzungen und auf das diesbezügliche Vorgehen eingegangen. Darüber hinaus werden Komplikationen, wie Phlegmonen, Abszesse, Nekrosen und Algorithmen zu deren Erkennung, Therapie und Vermeidung dargestellt.
