Plastering techniques for GPs. Part 2: Volar forearm slab
This article describes what I do. However, these are only my personal preferences and do not exclude other preferences, techniques and ‘tricks of the trade’.
Volar forearm slab
Applying a dorsal slab to the forearm that extends over the dorsum of the metacarpophalangeal joints may cause pressure to those joints, with resultant skin breakdown and erosion extending into the joints. I prefer a volar slab.
