Burns in infants are rare. The majority of neonatal burns occur in the hospital setting. The immaturity of their immune system, their fragile and thin skin, difficulties in resuscitation, engraftment paucity limited by donor sites, and long-term complications make taking care of burned newborns extremely difficult. We present the case of a newborn burned 30 minutes after his birth over a total body surface of 35%, when the hot water bottle used in the hospital accidentally burst. This is the earliest iatrogenic burn in a newborn reported to date...

In harvesting skin to cover the defect caused by a burn, a second wound is created, the donor site wound. We propose an alternative method to manage the donor site: taking a split-thickness skin graft (STSG) from a donor site adjacent to the burn wound to be treated, and meshing at a 3:1 ratio to cover both sites at once. The main objective of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of covering both burn wound and adjacent donor site with the same STSG in elderly and bedridden patients. We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of 6 patients over 60 years old or/and bedridden presenting with a small burn wound who underwent STSG of both burn wound and adjacent donor site between April 2016 and November 2016 in the Department of Plastic Surgery and Burn Treatment at Percy Military Hospital (France)...

The purpose of this study is to analyze the effectiveness of surgery and follow-up of children operated on for burn sequelae. For many years, we have organized two missions per year to Benin and Togo, one for surgery and one for follow-up. We analyzed the files of children born in Africa and victims of burns from the years 2002 to 2011. Children were referred through a non-governmental organization (NGO) and assessed in Africa by local paediatricians before and after surgery. Treatment consisted in operating on burn sequelae such as contractures, hypertrophic scars and hard cords...

Burns are among the most common causes of injury in children. Several wound dressings are available to conservatively treat second-degree burns. Seventy-three children were treated with Aquacel Ag foam and Zn-hyaluronon gel to determine their effectiveness on partial thickness burns. We applied silver nitrate solution on 25% of patients for 24 hrs, then checked burn depth. If the burn was superficial second degree, we applied the dressing under study. All dressings were removed 6-7 days later. In the remaining children we used Aquacel Ag foam dressing with Zn-hyaluronon gel at first intervention...

Burn wounds frequently get infected due to a break in skin integrity and prolonged hospitalization. Microbial flora originating from the patient's own flora colonize and infect the burn wounds. Bacterial biofilms in particular are postulated as the culprit for the development of non-healing burn wounds by inducing chronic inflammation in these patients. In the present study, 190 wound isolates obtained from patients admitted to the burn ward at the Pt. B.D. Sharma PGIMS, Rohtak, were evaluated for biofilm formation along with Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing (AST)...

Plasma lactate (PL) has been used as a marker of cellular hypoxia and shock. The correlation between PL and clinical outcome has been well accepted in hemorrhagic and septic shock. In contrast to the existing evidence, there are no or almost no data dealing with lactate and burn-related outcome. We attempted to assess whether early plasma lactate (PL) is a useful parameter to predict outcome in burned patients. A prospective study was conducted in a 20-bed adult burn ICU at a university-affiliated teaching hospital in Tunis...

Burns are physically, psychologically and economically challenging injuries, and the factors leading to them are many and under-studied. The aim of the current study was to assess level of anxiety, depression and self-esteem in burn patients, and look at various burn-related variables that affect them. This cross-sectional study included 100 patients with burn injuries admitted to a tertiary care private hospital in an urban metropolis in India. The patients were assessed for anxiety, depression and self-esteem using the Hamilton anxiety rating scale, Hamilton depression rating scale and Rosenberg self-esteem scale respectively...

It is estimated that 13.000 to 22.000 individuals suffer from inhalational burns each year in the United States alone. Despite these high numbers, inhalational burns remain a major challenge to otolaryngologists. In this paper, a review of literature is presented in order to provide otolaryngologists with a systematic approach to patients with inhalational burns to optimize treatment, cost, morbidity and, most importantly, mortality. For this purpose, a broad PubMed search was conducted. The available literature was found to highlight the importance of airway management in terms of the timing of intubation, method of intubation, trachea-esophageal (TE) fistula formation and TE rupture...

Cement burn is a common cause of chemical burns in France. They usually need surgical treatment. This retrospective study was performed among 49 patients, aged 21-71 years, admitted to the St Joseph-St Luc Hospital in Lyon, France. Patients were mainly male, fairly young (mean 44 years) and had a professional activity, although burns usually occurred at home. Burns were deep, on the lower limbs, and were not extensive (3% TBS). All but one patient needed grafting, performed on d13. LOS was eight days. Seven patients had to be admitted to a rehabilitation centre afterwards...

There are two types of prognostic model - burn-specific and general - to predict mortality risk in burn patients. Most prediction models were devised in developed countries. The aim of this study was to compare the performance of six outcome models in a developing country. In a retrospective cohort study, data of all thermal burned adult patients (age ≥ 18 years) admitted to the Burn Intensive Care Unit (BICU) were collected and then the following six prediction models were used to assess each patient: Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation (APACHE II), Abbreviated Burn Severity Index (ABSI), Belgian Outcome in Burn Injury (BOBI), the Ryan model, revised Baux and FLAMES model...

A major problem of burns is the high cost of management, as well as the discrimination and disability they can cause to patients. Maximising resource utilisation is of key importance for lower-middle-income countries (LMICs) like Nigeria. There is a need to know if Nigerian patients who were victims of burns get the best value for money. This study aimed to evaluate the average cost of managing burns in Nigeria, and determine if the treatment approach is cost-effective. The study was a cost-utility analysis from the perspective of health service providers in Nigeria, a case study of the National Orthopaedic Hospital Enugu (NOHE) using 2013 Microsoft excel...

Pediatric palmar contact burns are becoming a common trauma, especially in young children. Treatment of this kind of burn is challenging as well as controversial, regarding the choice between split-thickness or full-thickness skin graft to close the defect. The aim of this review was to evaluate the treatment algorithm at our clinic. We conducted a retrospective study including all patients 0 - 5 years of age admitted to our department from 2008 to 2012 with isolated superficial or deep partial-thickness palmar burns...

The aim of the present study was to examine burn patient health status, quality of life and work status 16.2 (1.7) [mean (SD)] years after burn injury, and to compare the findings with similar questionnaire data from the same people obtained 11.5 years earlier. Data on burn-specific health (BSHS-N), generic health (SF-36), overall quality of life (QOLS), injury characteristics, socio-demography and work were obtained in 2001 from 95 adult burn patients. In 2013, 78 participants were still eligible, and 34 of them (age: 53...

During a judicial inquiry, the forensic doctor is frequently required to examine the hospitalized fire victim. He has to produce a certificate on the burns, defining their origin, seriousness and prognosis. The expert assessment of serious burn victims consists in an overall evaluation of functional and psychological sequelae, and can be conducted only after the long period of treatment needed for them to heal. The expert must know the forensic rules concerning the specific features of sequelae that follow a cutaneous burn injury...

There is a real risk of electrical accidents in the operating theatre, with the growing number of electrical, electronic and flammable liquids used. Electrocautery remains the most commonly used device for its electrosurgical effect of coagulation or tissue section. When it is defective or misplaced on a small area of the skin, it can cause a typically deep, slow healing skin burn. It adds an unexpected iatrogenic morbidity to the initial condition, with devastating consequences for the patient, the surgeon and sometimes the hospital...
