In characterization of the injury, the components of the wound must be described (Fig. 21). The dimensions of the wound: length, width The shape of the wound: sharp, uneven, undercut, covered, indented The edges of the wound: singular, multiple, sharp, dull, uneven (slipped crease) The side of the wound: smooth, bulging, uneven, undercut, bridged by connective tissue The base of the wound: the wound's deepest The area surrounding the a, dirtied, swollen.

The base of the wound is sharply cut, more or less in a V-shape. Whereas fatty tissue bulges in a little, muscle tissue retracts and pulls the sides away.
