Histoire Du Traitement Des Brûlures En France. La Place De L’Hôpital Léon Bérard (Hyères) : Rééducation, Société Savante, Association De Patients.

Ann Burns Fire Disasters 2020 Mar;33(1):69-82

Hôpital Léon Bérard, Hyères, France.

In the 50s and 60s, before burn centres appeared, burn patients were primarily treated in surgical departments. They were then referred to sanatorium-type institutions, moving towards functional rehabilitation but without a really structured service. In the early 70s, Jean-Pierre Jouglard, Marseille Surgeon, Head of the Burn Treatment Center of the University Hospital of Marseille, collaborated with Dr. Read More

Reconstructive surgery of upper extremity after thermal burns: guidelines or experience?

Authors:
A Stritar M Mikša

Ann Burns Fire Disasters 2020 Mar;33(1):47-52

Medical Centre Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Hand burns are among the most common burns due to the fact that they are, apart from the face, most exposed to fire, and they are also used to protect the face against a severe trauma from fire. Although hand burns are relatively small with regard to the total body surface area affected, the severity of the damage goes beyond the affected area. Initial treatment is conservative, followed by surgical management. Read More

Head and neck skin expansion: assessment of efficiency for the treatment of lesions in the lower half of the face.

Ann Burns Fire Disasters 2020 Mar;33(1):38-46

Saint-Louis Hospital, Paris, France.

The treatment of sequelae for burns or other loss of perioral tissues is complex due to the site where they occur, its functional importance, and social and esthetic aspects. Functional consequences of burns to this area are cutaneous retraction and a lack of skin that can lead to an inability to close the oral aperture, compromising the provision of dental hygiene and intubation procedures. The aim of the present publication was to evaluate the efficacy of chin, labial and jugal cutaneous expansions for the treatment of perioral lesions and lesions of the lower half of the face in our retrospective series of patients.

Optimizing the use of Aquacel Ag® for pediatric burns - When to start?

Ann Burns Fire Disasters 2020 Mar;33(1):33-37

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Rambam Health Care Campus, Haifa, Israel.

Most pediatric burns are 2nd degree partial thickness, and most will heal spontaneously by providing a good healing environment, though there is no standardized treatment protocol. Aquacel Ag® has shown good clinical results in reducing the need for frequent dressing changes in the pediatric population. This study's goal was to review our experience using this dressing for pediatric partial thickness burns in order to optimize and customize its use. Read More

Lisbon Burn Centre experience with intentional burn injuries.

Ann Burns Fire Disasters 2020 Mar;33(1):14-19

Centro Hospitalar Lisboa Central, Lisbon, Portugal.

Burn injury as a form of hetero or auto-aggression accounts for a significant amount of admissions to a Burn Care Unit, with epidemiologic and clinical specificities. To investigate the differences in risk factors, psychiatric comorbidities, injury severity and mortality among adult patients with accidental or intentional burns, we analyzed routinely collected data from a Central Hospital Burn Unit over a period of 6 years (January 1st, 2010 to December 31st, 2015). We identified 22 intentional burn patients (5%) among all the admissions to our Burn Unit. Read More

From acute management to ultimate reconstruction: a 15-year follow-up of a pediatric patient with necrotizing fasciitis secondary to varicella infection.

Ann Burns Fire Disasters 2019 Dec;32(4):331-334

American University of Beirut Medical Center, Beirut, Lebanon.

Necrotizing fasciitis is a rapidly progressive, life-threatening soft tissue infection. The usually aggressive surgical debridement often leaves disfiguring sequelae.We hereby present the case of a 4-yearold boy who presented with post varicella zoster necrotizing fasciitis over his trunk, and follow his journey post reconstruction with split thickness skin grafts and the sequelae of grafting over the trunk.

Craniomaxillofacial trauma management in austere and war zone environments - A role for composite tissue allotransplantation?

Ann Burns Fire Disasters 2019 Dec;32(4):308-320

Queen Mary University of London, London, UK.

Facial composite tissue allotransplantation (CTA) is a powerful reconstructive option in cases of extensive severe facial injury and tissue loss. Despite the risk of allograft rejection and the post-operative need for lifelong immunosuppression, facial CTA can be used to restore the normal structural appearance and function of the face. Areas of socioeconomic deprivation and armed conflict zones have a high preponderance of patients with facial burns and other severe injuries. Read More

Post-burn neck contracture is one of the most common burn sequels. These contractures affect the patient significantly causing both functional limitations and esthetic disfigurements, which lead to cosmetic, functional and social problems. Our objective was to determine the role of supraclavicular artery island (SAI) flap as an option for the reconstruction of soft tissue defect of the neck after release of post-burn contracture.

Plastic and Reconstructive Microsurgery, Careggi University Hospital, Florence, Italy.

Infection following burn injury is critical, especially for patients with large total body surface area burns and in skin graft donor sites. Although various aspects of α-tocopherol acetate (α-TA) beneficial effects on wound healing have been validated, it appears that no study has specifically addressed its antimicrobial potential. The purpose of this study was to explore the therapeutic efficacy of topical application of α-TA in terms of bacterial load reduction. Read More

Department of Hand Surgery, Plastic Surgery and Burns, and Department of Clinical and Experimental Medicine, Linköping University, Linköping, Sweden.

In the Western world, self-inflicted burns are often associated with mental health disorders, and the management, particularly the pain treatment, can often be complicated by the psycho-social background of the patients. The aim was to describe a group of patients with self-inflicted burns by analysing their in-hospital mortality and the use of sedation during procedures. All patients with self-inflicted burns admitted to the Linköping Burn Centre during 2000-2017 were included. Read More
