The use of chloramphenicol ointment as an adhesive for replacement of the nail plate after simple nail bed repairs.

Fingertip injuries are common and are often repaired. The nail plate is replaced to protect the repair and maintain the alignment of the nail bed edges after repair. Once replaced, this can be secured by any means and often a suture is used. We advocate that a small bleb of chloramphenicol provides a simple method of securing the nail plate. It is fast, easy and secure. In addition it provides an antibacterial effect, which may be of some benefit.
