Patients with burn trauma are always in danger of contracting an infection. Although invasive mycotic infections are not as frequent as bacterial infections, high mortality and in many cases difficult diagnostics pose a serious threat not only for neutropenic patients. In more extensive burns the status is further complicated by specifically compromised(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify the basic epidemiological characteristics of children hospitalized with diagnosis of Staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome in the Czech Republic in the years 1994-2009. INTRODUCTION Staphylococcal scalded skin syndrome (SSSS) is a relatively rare disease in childhood. This syndrome was first defined in 1878 by Baron Gottfried Ritter(More)
BACKGROUND Infection complications caused by gram-negative bacteria nowadays constitute the dominant mortality cause in severely burned patients. Pseudomonas aeruginosa is the most feared nosocomial pathogen among burn centers worldwide, with the highest mortality. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study involved adult patients hospitalized at the Intensive Care(More)
Aim. The aim of this work is to determine the incidence of ventilator-associated tracheobronchitis (VAT) and ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) and to define the define the most important respiratory pathogens in patients with inhalation injury. Introduction. Infectious complications in severely burned patients present serious problems. Patients with(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of this study was to determine the basic epidemiological characteristics of severely burned children who were admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU), Department of Burns and Reconstructive Surgery Faculty Hospital Brno, Czech Republic in the years 1997-2009. METHODS We collected and evaluated epidemiological data such as age, sex,(More)
Improving microcirculation in the area of a wound is an important aspect of wound healing. It can be improved by a new manual methodology: myofascial-manual lymphatic drainage (M-MLD). This hybrid technique uses elements of musculoskeletal medicine and manual lymphatic drainage. Through palpation, M-MLD therapeutically affects the functional pathology of(More)
The aim of our study was to retrospectively evaluate the epidemiological characteristics of patients with high voltage electrical injury from 1999 to 2009. The Clinic of Burns and Reconstructive Surgery, Faculty Hospital Brno is located in a region of 2,505,000 inhabitants. In total 13,911 patients (including both children and adults, and outpatients as(More)
GOAL OF THE STUDY To apply results of the hemocoagulation parameters to the DIC (disseminated intravascular coagulation) score system. Compare parameters of the DIC score in patients with extensive burn trauma (hospitalized at the Intensive Care Unit, ICU) and patients with lesser extent of burn injury (hospitalized at the standard unit). To use these data(More)
The medial plantar artery (MPA) flap was first introduced by Mir y Mir in 1954 and used to reconstruct a heel defect. The sole of the foot is designed to bear body weight and absorb the shocks of a bipedal gait. The properties of the plantar skin and deeper tissues are therefore highly specialised, and if normal function is to be restored, it is essential(More)
