JPRAS - Vol. 72, No. 8 (2019)Allograft skin (AS) transplantation has been considered to be the gold standard for replacing tissue damage, following burns. However, increasingly new biosynthetic skin substitutes are being developed as alternatives. The objective of this systematic review is to compare AS with other skin substitutes, which have been used in the treatment of burns.

portada - EJPS - Vol. 35 (2012)Burns are a major health problem worldwide. In some countries, they are the fourth leading cause of death in trauma patients. Every year, more than 200,000 deaths occur because of diverse types of burns, and the majority of these deaths occur in low-income countries. The incidence of burn mortality depends on both patient factors (age, gender, and comorbidities) and burn factors (depth and total burn surface area (TBSA)). Mortality prediction for burn patients is important not only to determine the prognosis of individual patients but to assess the performance of the burn institute and the quality of the health care the patients receive. Many mortality or survival prediction models have been developed, modified, and validated. The abbreviated burn scoring index (ABSI) is one of the most commonly used scores for assessing patients’ mortality. It was reviewed, modified, and validated in this study.

Burn & Trauma. Vol. 3; 18 (2015)Burns are a significant cause of trauma, and over the years, the focus of patient care has shifted from just survival to facilitation of improved functional outcomes. Typically, burn treatment, especially in the case of extensive burn injuries, involves surgical excision of injured skin and reconstruction of the burn injury with the aid of skin substitutes. Conventional skin substitutes do not contain all skin cell types and do not facilitate recapitulation of native skin physiology. Three-dimensional (3D) bioprinting for reconstruction of burn injuries involves layer-by-layer deposition of cells along with scaffolding materials over the injured areas. Skin bioprinting can be done either in situ or in vitro.

portada Burns Open - Vol. 2; No. 3 (2018)Sepsis is a life-threatening organ-dysfunction condition caused by a dysregulated response to an infectious condition that can cause complications in patients with major trauma. Burns are one of the most destructive forms of trauma; despite the improvements in medical care, infections remain an important cause of burn injury-related mortality and morbidity, and complicated sepsis predisposes patients to diverse complications such as organ failure, lengthening of hospital stays, and increased costs. Accurate diagnosis and early treatment of sepsis may have a beneficial impact on clinical outcome of burn-injured patients.
