    University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine, Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery, Interdisciplinary Stem Cell Institute, 1501 NW 10th Street, Suite 924, Miami, FL 33136, USA.
    Burns are a common and sometimes devastating injury causing a significant amount of pain, disability, and occasionally death. Burns can have serious aesthetic and functional consequences such as pigmentary changes and formation of scar tissue. Hypopigmentation or depigmentation is often a result of partial- or full-thickness burns, which is referred to as leukoderma after burn. Read More

    Background: Currently, the isotretinoin (13-cis-retinoic acid) package insert contains language advising the discontinuation of isotretinoin for 6 months before performing cosmetic procedures, including waxing, dermabrasion, chemical peels, laser procedures, or incisional and excisional cold-steel surgery. It is common practice to follow this standard because of concerns regarding reports of sporadic adverse events and increased risk of scarring.

    Objective: To develop expert consensus regarding the safety of skin procedures, including resurfacing, energy device treatments, and incisional and excisional procedures, in the setting of concurrent or recent isotretinoin use. Read More

    Principles of Nasal Reconstruction.

    J Burn Care Res 2017 May/Jun;38(3):179-186
    From the *Clinic of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Kayseri Training and Research Hospital, Kayseri, Turkey; †Burn Unit, Department of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Medical Faculty, Erciyes University, Kayseri, Turkey; ‡Burn Unit, Clinic of General Surgery, Sanliurfa Mehmet Akif Inan Training and Research Hospital, Sanliurfa, Turkey; and §Department of Pathology, Medical Faculty, Erciyes University, Kayseri, Turkey.
    Early tangential excision of the burn wound is essential for removal of necrotic tissue and promotion of burn wound healing process. However, the depth of the burn wound is not easily assessed during the tangential excision performed by hand-held dermatomes, and it may be possible to excise unburned vital dermis unnecessarily, which aids in primary epithelization of the burn wound by adnexal structures. We herein present early clinical results of steel wool-aided dermabrasion in patients with deep partial-thickness burns. Read More

    The scar of soft tissues is a permanent stigma of a trauma but it can sometimes be improved. It is more or less accepted by the patient and may be the source of a significant physical and psychosocial impact that leads to a request for a scar revision. Even if the child presents generally an excellent ability to heal, the quality of the scar depends on many factors such as the age, the type of scar or trauma and the affected body area. Read More
