The status quo of early burn wound excision: Insights from the German burn registry.

Burns 2021 Jul 10. Epub 2021 Jul 10.

Department of Hand, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Burn Center, BG Trauma Center Ludwigshafen, Plastic- and Hand Surgery, University of Heidelberg, Germany. Electronic address:

Background: There is a common, well-known and established recommendation to excise burn wounds within 24-72 h in order to mitigate the systemic inflammatory and immunomodulatory response, shorten length of hospitalization through early grafting and optimize patient survival. Despite this apparent consensus, surprisingly few systematic studies have evaluated the actual adherence to this practice and its implications on patient outcomes. In this registry study, we sought to objectify the current status of early burn wound excision, its influencing factors and impact on patient outcomes for all German burn centers. Read More

Some surgeons choose laparoscopically to perform partial cholecystectomy, whereas others convert to open surgery. In this study, we aim to discuss and compare the effectiveness of laparoscopic partial cholecystectomy (LPC) and open partial cholecystectomy (OPC). Read More

J Wound Care 2021 Jul;30(7):544-552

NELFT Community Services, NELFT NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK.

Ageing mechanisms that contribute to tissue remodeling in lung disease.

Ageing Res Rev 2021 Jul 6;70:101405. Epub 2021 Jul 6.

School of Biomedical Sciences and Pharmacy, University of Newcastle, Callaghan, NSW, Australia; Hunter Medical Research Institute, New Lambton Heights, NSW, Australia; Providence Health Care Research Institute, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Age is a major risk factor for chronic respiratory diseases such as idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and certain phenotypes of asthma. The recent COVID-19 pandemic also highlights the increased susceptibility of the elderly to acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), a diffuse inflammatory lung injury with often long-term effects (ie parenchymal fibrosis). Collectively, these lung conditions are characterized by a pathogenic reparative process that, rather than restoring organ function, contributes to structural and functional tissue decline.
