Most immune-mediated adverse drug reactions (IM-ADRs) involve the skin, and many have additional systemic features. Severe cutaneous adverse drug reactions (SCARs) are an uncommon, potentially life-threatening, and challenging subgroup of IM-ADRs with diverse clinical phenotypes, mechanisms, and offending drugs. T-cell-mediated immunopathology is central to these severe delayed reactions, but effector cells and cytokines differ by clinical phenotype. Strong HLA-gene associations have been elucidated for specific drug-SCAR IM-ADRs such as Stevens-Johnson syndrome/toxic epidermal necrolysis, although the mechanisms by which carriage of a specific HLA allele is necessary but not sufficient for the development of many IM-ADRs is still being defined...

Scar management is a recognised key component of rehabilitation following burn. Moisturising often combined with massage is commenced once healing tissue has gained sufficient strength to tolerate surface friction, with the aim being to hydrate the dry scar. The studies on various moisturisers and creams provide some guidance on moisturiser selection, but many are inconclusive. OBJECTIVE: This survey aimed to determine the current expert opinion regarding moisturiser recommendations, including the basis for these recommendations, across the burns community...

BACKGROUND: Partial thickness burns of up to 10% total body surface area (TBSA) in children are common injuries primarily treated in the outpatient setting using expensive silver-containing dressings. However, economic evaluations in the paediatric burns population are lacking to assist healthcare providers when choosing which dressing to use. The aim of this study was to conduct a cost-effectiveness analysis of three silver dressings for partial thickness burns ≤10% TBSA in children aged 0-15 years using days to full wound re-epithelialization as the health outcome...

Burn injury can result in hypertrophic scar formation that can lead to debilitating functional deficits and poor aesthetic outcomes. Although nonoperative modalities in the early phase of scar maturation are critical to minimize hypertrophic scar formation, surgical management is often indicated to restore hand function. The essential tenant of operative scar management is release of tension, which can often be achieved through local tissue rearrangement. Laser therapy has emerged as a central pillar of subsequent scar rehabilitation...

Upper extremity burns can result in lifelong complications. A comprehensive occupational therapy program is imperative for restoration of arm function. Edema management, splinting, exercise, scar management, and activities of daily living are key treatment elements to achieve optimal postburn outcomes. Proper patient and family education are essential for therapeutic success. Burn recovery requires a commitment to therapeutic techniques that can progress a patient to their maximal independence.

At the 2016 State of the Science meeting, clinicians and burn survivors met to discuss the advances in scar prevention, evaluation and treatment. While emerging evidence exists to support pressure garment treatment of scars and the use of silicone gel, further research is necessary to better delineate indications duration and efficacy of established therapies and to develop and test badly needed new treatments. More accurate and objective assessment of burn depth would assist in the prevention and identification of wounds requiring customized surgery...

Tetralogy of Fallot is a congenital disease caused by structural defects within the heart that can lead to cyanosis. The purpose of this case report is to discuss the use of PracaSil-Plus, a proprietary topical anhydrous silicone base containing pracaxi oil, in scar-management therapy, following open-heart surgery on a pediatric patient with tetralogy of Fallot. The Patient and Observer Scar Assessment Scale was the research instrument used to evaluate for efficacy of the scar therapy. Following 8 weeks of treatment with PracaSil-Plus, reduction in scores were observed for scar color, stiffness, thickness, and irregularity, with improvements of 87...

BACKGROUND: Thermal injuries are one of the most physically and psychologically devastating causes of pediatric trauma. Post-traumatic sequelae such as hypertrophic scars and contractures often result in long lasting morbidity and disfigurement. Conservative therapy, including pressure garments and silicone, is the gold standard for scar management in the pediatric population. Most recently percutaneous collagen induction (PCI) was introduced as an alternative treatment in adults. The aim of this report was to share our experience with PCI in children and adolescents in scar management following thermal injuries...
