The purpose of this study is to determine the incidence of sinusitis in mechanically ventilated burn victims and to examine if the presence of inhalational injury increases the likelihood of developing sinusitis. The authors hypothesize that the incidence of sinusitis will be increased in burn victims who have concomitant inhalational injury. A retrospective chart analysis was performed on all patients who were admitted to the Nathan Speare Regional Burn Treatment Center over a 24-month time frame. Patients who were mechanically ventilated for greater than 24 hours were then selected, resulting in a total of 137 patients for analysis...

The authors sought to increase the number of days when burn service patients receive 100% of prescribed enteral nutrition. The authors first performed a retrospective review of 37 patients (group 1) receiving enteral nutrition. The authors then created and implemented a nurse-directed feeding algorithm, placing patients into three age groups addressing maximum hourly infusion rates, high residual limits, initiating feeding, refeeding residuals, and replacing formula. The authors then performed a prospective review of 37 patients (group 2) fed utilizing the new algorithm...

Hidradenitis suppurativa (HS) is a debilitating suppurative disease of the apocrine/follicular glands. Medical treatment has some efficacy in early-stage disease but is costly and requires frequent physician visits. Advanced disease usually requires surgical intervention. This treatment has not been well described in the literature. We sought to review our experience with HS treatment in a large surgical cohort. A retrospective review of 98 consecutive HS patients from 2000 to 2014 was performed. A two-stage operative approach was used...

Frostbite injury causes direct damage to tissues following exposure to temperatures below their freezing point causing tissue death potentially leading to serious amputations. After rewarming, a variety of treatment options have been employed to avoid amputation. This case report details the use of indocyanine green fluorescence microangiography to monitor the clinical progression of perfusion following hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) for severe frostbite injury. We present a case report of a man with deep frostbite of the bilateral hands treated with thrombolytics and HBOT...

Bioimpedance spectroscopy (BIS) is a method used to assess body composition and fluid distribution. As a technology for measurement of fluid shifts during acute burn resuscitation, there are potential barriers to its use due to the location of wounds. This study aimed to determine whether alternate electrode positions were a suitable alternative compared to standardized (manufacturer) positions in moderate to large size burns for the measurement of BIS resistance and fluid changes. BIS measurements were collected in standard and alternate electrode placements and in an open wound and Acticoatâ„¢ dressing condition...

Accurate assessment of hand function following a burn is important for patient impairment determination. Goniometric measurement of hand or finger range of motion (ROM) is typically done measuring individual finger joints with the adjacent joint in extension (isolated) or measuring the joints in a fist position (composite). The purpose of this study was to compare if the total flexion motion of the summed angles of the metacarpophalangeal, proximal interphalangeal, and distal interphalangeal joints in burned hands were equal when performed in an isolated vs a composite manner...

Burn is the most common pediatric injuries all over the world. The aim of this study was to study the epidemiology of burn in under 15-year-old Iranian children by applying a systematic review. The related articles published before 2016 have been gathered from international databases by using the keywords in term of pediatric burns such as ScienceDirect, PubMed, Iranmedex, Google Scholar, Embase, Magiran, and SID. The checklists of STROBE have been applied to evaluate the quality of the reviewed data. A total of 35 relevant studies were extracted and evaluated...

This study was aimed to explore the level of psychological distress and posttraumatic stress among female burn survivors in Pakistan. It was also intended to study the kind of social support available to these burn survivors in a society where women right violation is common. The sample consisted of 35 female burn victims selected from two hospitals. General Health Questionnaire, posttraumatic stress disorder Checklist-Specific, and Social Support Scale were used to measure study variables in addition to a short open-ended questionnaire to identify coping strategies of these burn survivors...

Vascularized composite allotransplantation (VCA) has demonstrated utility in the reconstruction of extensive soft-tissue defects following severe burns. However, pre-VCA events such as multiple transfusions, previous transplantation and pregnancies, the use of skin allografts, and mechanical support devices may result in sensitization and ultimately exclude a burn patient, who may benefit most through VCA, from a hand or face transplant. The authors sought to identify the immunologic challenges involved. All reported VCA cases up to July 2016 were reviewed...

Patients with extensive burn injuries suffer from multisystem trauma, which affects their medical, psychological, and social well-being for many years. Monitoring those patients has revealed changes in the endocrine, cardiac, and respiratory systems years after the injury. Our study tries to examine whether changes manifest as a higher risk of death during their lifespan, compared with the general population. Data from the years 1998 to 2013 regarding two groups of patients was obtained from a national trauma registry: one group had suffered burns over 20% of their TBSA and survived the hospitalization period and the second group was a control group of patients admitted with minimal trauma (Injury Severity Score = 1-minor injury to a single body region)...
