Allografts are in constant demand, not only for burn victims, but also for all open wounds as "biological dressings". Tissue quality and security are two of the major concerns of Tissue Banks. There are limited studies published. There has been extensive discussion on the subject of preservation methods for cadaver skin. Most literature available comes from clinical reports. In this research, the authors compared 85% glycerolized non irradiated skin allografts with three glycerolized irradiated skin allografts (using different glycerol concentrations 50%, 70% and 85%)...

INTRODUCTION: The assessment of burn depth can be challenging even to the experienced burn clinician. Clinical assessment is most widely used to determine burn depth. Because of this subjective nature, various imaging modalities have been invented. The use of photospectometry as a novel technique in burn wound depth analysis has been previously described but the literature is very limited. METHODOLOGY: We carried out a single blinded non-randomized comparative study of healing potential of 50 burn wounds between tissue spectrophotometry analysis versus clinical evaluation...

INTRODUCTION: Burn shock, a complex process, which develops following burn leads to severe and unique derangement of cardiovascular function. Patients with preexisting comorbidities such as cardiovascular diseases may be more susceptible. We therefore sought to examine the impact of preexisting cardiovascular disease on burn outcomes. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of patients admitted to a regional burn center from 2002 to 2012. Independent variables analyzed included basic demographics, burn mechanism, presence of inhalation injury, TBSA, pre-existing comorbidities, and length of ICU/hospital stay...

BACKGROUND: Burns have severe economic burden for families and countries therefore its treatment modalities have utmost importance. Several study both experimental or clinic has been reported accordingly. Although contact burns were frequently used models, most of them were manually designed. The elapsed time was recorded only. However, the real time contact surface temperature (T) and weight force (WF) were fundamental characteristics of a burn model. The aim of this study is to create a standard burn model with recording real time variables on behalf of custom designed apparatus...

INTRODUCTION: Worldwide, burns are responsible for more than 300,000 deaths annually; infection is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in these patients. Early identification and treatment of infection improves outcome. Toward this end it's necessary to identify the institutions flora and organisms that most frequently produces infection. OBJECTIVES: To characterize infections developed by burn patients hospitalized at the University Hospital of Santander (HUS)...

AIM: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of massage and music on pain intensity, anxiety intensity and relaxation level in burn patients. INTRODUCTION: Pain and anxiety are common among burn patients, but there are many physical and psychological consequences. METHODS: This randomized controlled clinical trial with factorial design 2×2 included 240 burn patients admitted at Shahid Motahari Burns Hospital, Tehran, Iran, between September 2013 and May 2015...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this systematic review and meta-analysis was to assess the clinical effectiveness of nanocrystalline silver compared to alternative silver delivery systems (silver sulphadiazine [SSD] and silver nitrate) in adults and children with superficial and deep partial thickness burns. METHODS: PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane and other databases were searched to identify relevant randomised controlled trials and observational studies. RESULTS: Eight studies that assessed both nanocrystalline silver and SSD and one study that compared nanocrystalline silver vs...

OBJECTIVE: tPA and anticoagulation for treatment of severe frostbite have been reported suggesting differences in imaging techniques, route of tPA administration and management of patients after tPA infusion. This is a report of our results following a protocol of Tc-99m scanning, intravenous tPA administration, followed by either systemic anticoagulation or antiplatelet therapy. METHODS: Patients admitted to our burn center between February 13, 2015 and February 13, 2016 for frostbite who met inclusion criteria were treated with Tc-99m scan and intravenous tPA followed by systemic anticoagulation or antiplatelet therapy...

OBJECTIVE: Diabetic burns patients may be at risk of worse clinical outcomes. This study aims to further investigate the impact of diabetes mellitus on clinical outcomes in burns patients in Singapore. METHODS: A 3-year retrospective review was performed at the Singapore General Hospital Burns Centre (2011-2013). Pure inhalational burns were excluded. Diabetic (N=53) and non-diabetic (N=533) patients were compared, and the impact of diabetes on clinical outcomes, adjusting for confounders, was investigated using multivariate logistic regression...

BACKGROUND: In hypertrophic scar assessment, laser Doppler imaging (LDI), colorimetry and subjective assessment (POSAS) can be used to evaluate blood flow, erythema and redness, respectively. In addition, the microvasculature (i.e. presence of microvessels) can be determined by immunohistochemistry. These measurement techniques are frequently used in clinical practice and/or in research to evaluate treatment response and monitor scar development. However, until now it has not been tested to what extent the outcomes of these techniques are associated, whilst the outcome terms are frequently used interchangeably or replaced by the umbrella term 'vascularization'...

Mansher Singh, Kristo Nuutila, K C Collins, Anne Huang
BACKGROUND: Skin grafting is the current standard care in the treatment of full thickness burns. It was first described around 1500 BC but the vast majority of advancements have been achieved over the past 200 years. METHODS: An extensive literature review was conducted on Pubmed, Medline and Google Scholar researching the evolution of skin grafting techniques. The authors concentrated on the major landmarks of skin grafting and also provide an overview of ongoing research efforts in this field...

BACKGROUND: Burn patients are an especially high-risk population for development of central line associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI) due to open wounds, extended length of intensive care unit stay, frequent use of central venous catheters, and generally immunocompromised state. Implementing evidence-based practices to prevent these infections is a 2014 National Patient Safety Goal per The Joint Commission. OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this project was introduction of a commercially available alcohol impregnated central venous line port protector to reduce the incidence of CLABSI in the burn unit...

BACKGROUND: Excessive bleeding is a major concern in scar debridement and grafting procedures. TT-173 is a new topical hemostatic agent based on recombinant human tissue factor that has shown promising results in patients who underwent tooth extraction. EHTIC study sought to evaluate the efficacy and safety of TT-173 to reduce the bleeding in donor sites of skin grafting procedures. METHODS: EHTIC study was a phase II, randomized, parallel, double blind, placebo controlled trial...
