BACKGROUND: The aim of this prospective study in adult population is to give frequency data (prevalence, incidence) of burn wound sepsis and its consequences (organ dysfunction/failure); to analyze the evolution of the SOFA cumulative score during the disease and relationship between the SOFA score in the 3rd, 7th, 14th and 21th day after burn with mortality. METHOD: A prospective cohort study was performed among adult patients (age ≥20 years) admitted in the ICU, with major and moderate burns...

INTRODUCTION: This study assessed patient-perceived levels of scar assessment and burn-specific quality of life (QOL) in Korean burn patients admitted to burn care centers and identified differences in scar assessment and QOL based on various patient characteristics. METHODS: A cross-sectional descriptive study using anonymous paper-based survey methods was conducted with 100 burn patients from three burn centers specializing in burn care in South Korea. RESULTS: Mean subject age was 44...

BACKGROUND: Necrotizing fasciitis (NF) is a life-threatening infection requiring extensive debridement that may necessitate amputation. Free tissue transfer (FTT) is an option for reconstruction in difficult cases. Currently, only case reports have described FTT in the setting of NF, and comprehensive evidence on flap outcomes is lacking. The present study characterizes outcomes in patients with FTT following NF. METHODS: All patients admitted with NF between January 1, 2005 and December 31, 2011 to our level 1 burns/trauma referral center were retrospectively reviewed...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the geographic distribution and temporal trends of burn admissions in an Australian setting. METHODS: Health administrative data of all persons hospitalised for a first burn in Western Australia for the period 2000-2012 were used. Crude and standardised incident rates were generated for each region. Maps of crude rates were generated for state regions and postcode-suburbs of Perth, the capital city. Standardised incidence rates were generated for Western Australia, total and regions, and for sub-cohorts defined by age (<20years; ≥20 years), TBSA burn severity and major causes of burns (fire, scalds and contact)...

BACKGROUND: Objective measurement tools may be of great value to provide early and reliable burn wound assessment. Thermal imaging is an easy, accessible and objective technique, which measures skin temperature as an indicator of tissue perfusion. These thermal images might be helpful in the assessment of burn wounds. However, before implementation of a novel measurement tool into clinical practice is considered, it is appropriate to test its clinimetric properties (i.e. reliability and validity)...

REVIEW
N A Martin, S Falder
INTRODUCTION: Burn injury is common and depth is one measure of severity. Although the depth of burn injury is determined by many factors, the relationship between the temperature of the injurious agent and exposure duration, known as the time-temperature relationship, is widely accepted as one of the cornerstones of burn research. Moritz and Henriques first proposed this relationship in 1947 and their seminal work has been cited extensively. However, over the years, readers have misinterpreted their findings and incorporated misleading information about the time-temperature relationship into a wide range of industrial standards, burn prevention literature and medicolegal opinion...

INTRODUCTION: Published experience describing the use of Biobrane(®) for wound management in Stevens-Johnson Syndrome and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (SJS-TEN) is limited to case reports and case series involving ten or fewer patients. We have used Biobrane(®) in the care of SJS-TEN since 2000, and the purpose of this study was to review our experience with the application of Biobrane(®) for wound coverage in SJS-TEN. METHODS: A retrospective review of all cases of SJS-TEN admitted to an adult regional ABA-verified burn center between January 1, 2000 and June 1, 2015 was conducted...

AIM: The aim of this study is to investigate the factors affecting tear film and ocular surface in patients with facial burns. METHODS: A total of 273 patients with facial burns, treated at Hallym University Hangang Sacred Heart Hospital from November 2012 to July 2015, were included. Tear break-up time (TBUT), Schirmer's tear secretion test, fluorescein staining score (FSS), ocular surface disease index (OSDI), and visual analogue pain score (VAS) were compared according to burned surface area, burn site, burn cause, time since burn injury, or lid abnormality...

Roberto Rudge Ramos, Lydia Masako Ferreira
This study presents 3 cases of women ages ranged from 25 to 52 years with anterior cervical contractures caused by burns that resulted in functional and aesthetic deficit. Contracture release in 3 patients and reconstruction was done using a sub-fascial flap whose main pedicle was the supraclavicular artery and the occipito-postero-cervical vessels that were preserved. The flap was designed differently from the classically described that uses the skin of the shoulder but which presents differences of color and texture with relation to the skin of the neck...

INTRODUCTION: Ongoing increases in the prevalence of substance misuse among burn-injured patients necessitate a contemporary analysis of the association between substance misuse and clinical outcomes in burn-injured adults. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective cohort study of 1199 patients admitted to a regional burn center. History of substance misuse was derived from a prospective clinical registry and categorized as alcohol, illicit drug, or both. The primary outcome was hospital length of stay; association of substance misuse and inpatient complications were secondary outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Klebsiella pneumoniae is one of the predominant pathogens in burn wound infections, and prevalence of multidrug resistant strains has further complicated the situation. An increased interest in phage therapy as a means of combating infection has been accruing in recent years. In order to overcome the drawbacks associated with phage therapy, the present study was conducted to evaluate the potential of liposomes as a delivery vehicle for phage in the treatment of burn wound infection...

AIM: The aim was to investigate hand surface as a percentage of body surface area from infancy to 13 years of age using physical measurement and digital planimetry and establish the influence of age, gender, BMI for age and ethnicity, specifically in the South African population. A secondary aim included the development of a template for burn size measurement. METHODOLOGY: This was a cross-sectional observational study. Demographic information was obtained from each participant...

Guangtao Huang, Yuan Peng, Yong Yang, Chengyong Tang, Yuexian Fu
Acinetobacter baumannii (A. baumannii) is one of the leading pathogens in hospital infections. To characterize the epidemiology of A. baumannii in a burn ward, we collected all A. baumannii isolates though 18 months. Antibiotic susceptibility and antibiotic resistant genes were tested. Multilocus sequence typing (MLST) was further used to molecularly subtype these isolates. These isolates showed a severe multidrug resistant phenotype with 85% resistance to imipenem and meropenem. Along with the resistant phenotype, antibiotic resistant genes were widely found among these isolates...
