tensor bandages

  1. Question. In current practice, when is using tensor bandages indicated. I can't seem to find any literature out there supporting their use -- mainly because of the difficulties in having them apply consistent pressure where indicated. I remember 3 years ago using them to wrap a lady's legs who had edema and open sores -- but today literature is saying that compression stockings can be used even if there are open sores.
