contused cut


Explanation:
There is a difference between a cut and a cut with contusions.

A cut is clean (such as that made by a razor bolde or scalpel), and a contused cut shows bruises (contusions) along the edges. The usual cause of the contusions is a dull cutting instrument that requires a lot of force.

laceration with contusion


Explanation:
Since "cut" and "contusion" are so different in meaning (see first reference below), I suggest that you add "with."

bruise, contusion


Explanation:
Eu diria simplesmente assim: bruise

--------------------------------------------------
Note added at 9 hrs 14 mins (2005-07-21 02:53:15 GMT)

contusão = lesão produzida por um embate ou impacto, sem dar origem ao rompimento da pele; pisadura; equimose

Na minha opinião, o corte é oposto à contusão na medida em que a contusão é uma lesão SEM corte. Para mim, dizer **corte contuso** é contraditório. Ou um, ou outro.
