Tissue bridging refers to a strand of still intact tissue that joins one side of a wound to the other. It can occur at any depth. It is most obvious if on the surface and including skin tissue but can occur in the deeper tissue with no surface or skin bridging. Tissue bridging only occurs with a laceration, it will not be seen in a cut, incision or stab wound.
