The aim of this study was to evaluate the incidence of postoperative wound dehiscence and infection after early closure of evulsive facial wounds. This treatment was conducted on 28 male patients with evulsive facial wounds. The formation of these evulsive wounds was due to the rupture of temporary cavitation caused by high and extra high velocity messiles. All patients with average age of 18 years old were treated 24-48 hrs afire accidents at base hospitals (1988-1990).Primary healing was achieved in 24 subjects from 7 tO 15 days after the standard operation. Wound dehiscences and bacterial infections were observed in 4 subjects.The conclusion can be made from the results is that the early closure of evulsive facial wounds may reduce the rate of wound dehiscence and infection because of high vascularity in this area.
