Conventional fingertip dressings with gauze and bandage are difficult to handle and inconvenient for patients in usual life such as washing, because it is not waterproof. We developed a simple and waterproof method of fingertip dressing using semipermeable transparent film dressing IV 3000Ⱂ (Smith & Nephew, London, UK). 17 consecutive patients who have fingertip injuries or operations of fingertips were treated with waterproof dressing using semipermeable transparent film onto the conventional dressings. The dressing was replaced once a week and additional dressing replacement was done if needed. In most patients, the dressing was kept waterproof and adherent to the finger until the replacement. There were rare complications including skin maceration, itching. Patients were very satisfied that it was waterproof and comfortable. This new method has many advantages of waterproofness, flexibility, moist condition and application ease. Therefore, we think this dressing method is superior especially for the management of outpatients. (J Korean Wound Management Soc 2013;9:53-55)
