Conclusions A 20% total body surface area simulated torso burn injury does not further exacerbate heat strain when wearing a combat uniform. These findings suggest that the physiological strain associated with torso burn injuries is not different from noninjured individuals when wearing protective clothing during an acute exercise-heat stress.

AbstractThe scalp is a unique part of the human body and various etiological factors, such as tumour extirpation, infection, burns, or trauma, can lead to scalp defects. Primary closure, skin grafting, local flaps, tissue expansion or free tissue transfer are modalities available for scalp reconstruction. In this article, the authors share their institutional experience using various local flaps concerning the size, location, depth of defect and the quality of surrounding tissue. From September 2017 to January 2020, 54 patients underwent scalp reconstruction with local flaps for a sizeable defect size of 5 –150 ...

CONCLUSIONS: This review contains one randomised trial of hydrosurgery versus conventional debridement in a paediatric population with low percentage of total body surface area burn injuries. Based on the available trial data, there may be little or no difference between hydrosurgery and conventional debridement in terms of time to complete healing, postoperative infection, operative time, and scar outcomes at six months. These results are based on very low-certainty evidence. Further research evaluating these outcomes as well as health-related quality of life, resource use, and other adverse event outcomes is require...

ConclusionsBurning risk and mortality rates are essential in burned patients management, as they determine treatment priorities, standardizes patient treatment, and function as quality indicators. ABSI is a practical, fast, reproducible, low-cost, and effective screening system to stratify burned patients and correlates with the total days of hospital stay and in the intensive care unit.Level of evidence: Level IV, diagnostic study.

CONCLUSION: Atypic forms are not rare. MU is commonly recurrent, multiple, early arising and may appear in young people. The treatment of chronic wounds cannot be dissociated from the treatment of contractures, otherwise the wound will inevitably reappear. PMID: 32665065 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
