Event Description
It was reported that a patient underwent a total knee replacement procedure on an unknown date and topical skin adhesive was used. The patient is a small (b)(6) female, (b)(6) with no pre-existing medical conditions. The patient was sent home post op day 2 and swelling occurred over the next week. The patient developed blistering of the skin at and around the area the product was applied. Some of the blisters are dark and there is a pigmented/ abnormal skin appearance. The doctor reports that when applying the product he flexes the knee to 60-70 degrees and then sews it tight with 2-0 vicryl suture. The doctor uses 4-0 subcuticular running stitch. The blisters are managed by using an 18" needle to get the fluid out and then applying dressing. The patient was treated with keflex prophylactically. The patient required more post op wound care. There is no evidence of impaired healing or infection from the issue and the patient is reportedly doing well. The doctor opines that the amount of bleeding and swelling is the primary cause of the blistering and the tape not allowing seepage. Additional information has been requested.
