Historically, complications from nail bed injuries have perplexed the physician. Although in modern times better results have been achieved in treating simple nail bed injuries, successful treatment for severe nail bed injuries has continued to be elusive. Almost invariably the new nail splits or grows back deformed. As a results, the new nail often catches on clothing and makes it difficult for patients to pick up small objects. Also the new nail is often aesthetically unappealing.
The INRO™ Surgical Nail splint helps prevent most of these deformities if used properly. Also, in simple avulsion of the nail plate, it protects the nail bed and reduces pain.
