PMID:  6838119     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Injuries resulting from wringer washers are still fairly common around the world. Manufacturers' data regarding wringer washers are reported. The literature is reviewed, and 104 new pediatric cases seen between 1970 and 1980 at one pediatric institution are presented. These patients suffered a wide variety of injuries ranging from simple skin abrasions to loss of limbs. Skeletal, nerve, and tendon injuries were encountered. The recommended management stresses the importance of elevation and close observation with no emphasis on compression dressing.
