POST OP DRESSING RETENTION SOCK– CONTINUED

–Can be used for AK or BK. Can be used over dressing and then use an ace bandage over the top to apply “controlled” compression. Does not irritate or stress sutures during donning. Does not compromise peripheral circulation in marginal bypass vascular grafts; at times limited compression is desired for the first week or so. Can be used in combination with removable rigid dressings. Trains patients in sock management. Helps assess patient compliance with future pre-prosthetic regimens. Low cost. Little staff training required at hospital. Gets patient into the prosthetic services earlier.
