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)
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)
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 The study aims to evaluate the impact of early and late tracheostomy on microbiological changes in the airways in severely burned children. MATERIALS AND METHODS Early tracheostomy is sometimes performed within 3 days after the start of mechanical ventilation regular microbiological surveillance of the respiratory tract was done in all patients.(More)
Electrical burns are not ranked among the most frequent type of injuries, but they have the most devastating potential of all thermal injuries and often cause lifelong stigmatization. Those primarily affected are young males: work injuries predominate. An electrical burn is a specific nosological unit that has multiple acute and chronic abnormal(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)
BACKGROUND Posttraumatic loss of the thumb is devastating. Toe-to-hand transfer is considered the criterion standard of reconstruction but is associated with donor-site issues. The twisted-toe technique uses parts from the great toe and the second toe, which allows for almost anatomical restoration of the donor foot. The authors present their experience and(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)
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)
Electrical injuries are as old as the discovery of electricity itself. The first documented literature related to electrical injury was from 1879 when a French carpenter was handling a generator [1]. This incident was caused by low voltage (250 V). Basic division of such injuries is according to the size of electrotrauma, when the boundaries between high(More)
