Randomized Controlled Trial to Determine the Efficacy of Long-Term Growth Hormone Treatment in Severely Burned Children
TLDR
This large prospective clinical trial showed that long-term treatment with rhGH effectively enhances recovery of severely burned pediatric patients.
Five years' experience of the modified Meek technique in the management of extensive burns.
TLDR
The Meek technique of skin expansion and the suggested protocol are together efficient and effective in covering an open wound, particularly where there is a paucity of skin graft donor sites.
TEN YEARS OF EXPERIENCE IN MANAGING PATIENTS WITH BURN CONTRACTURES OF AXILLA, ELBOW, WRIST, AND KNEE JOINTS
TLDR
An analysis of 625 patients who had sustained burns across the axillae, elbows, wrists, or knee joints indicates that the use of splints and pressure across these joints will not only greatly decrease the incidence of contractures but will also reduce the frequency and need for release operations.
Effect of a supervised exercise and physiotherapy program on surgical interventions in children with thermal injury.
TLDR
It is indicated that patients would receive a significant benefit if enrolled in a supervised exercise and physiotherapy program with the exercise portion consisting of an aerobic and resistance-training component and should be incorporated as part of a postburn outpatient rehabilitation.
Use of vacuum-assisted wound closure to manage limb wounds in patients suffering from acute necrotizing fasciitis.
TLDR
The VAC technique of wound closure was found to be effective in managing non-healing limb wounds consequential to surgical treatment for patients suffering from acute necrotizing fasciitis.
Beneficial Effects of Extended Growth Hormone Treatment After Hospital Discharge in Pediatric Burn Patients
TLDR
Administration of rhGH for 1 year after burn was safe and improved recovery and salutary effects continued after rhGH treatment was discontinued, suggesting long-term functional improvements after treatment.
Management of Contractural Deformities Involving the Shoulder (Axilla), Elbow, Hip, and Knee Joints in Burned Patients
TLDR
Accumulating cellular evidence indicates that this mechanically transduced signal may lead to myofibroblast apoptosis and more rapid resolution of scar hypertrophy.
Management of Burn Injuries of the Perineum
TLDR
Burns involving the perineum are uncommon, but the area can be involved in extensive burns of the lower trunk and lower limbs and complex penile reconstruction and correction of rectal mucosal prolapse and anal strictures might be required in cases with extensive perineal burn injuries.
Penile reconstruction: combined use of an innervated forearm osteocutaneous flap and big toe pulp.
TLDR
Technical modifications in a 51-year-old man who had undergone penile amputation because of cancer were proper and satisfactory at the end of fourth year after the surgery, and the coital function was also satisfactory.
Effect of Exercise Training on the Frequency of Contracture-Release Surgeries in Burned Children
TLDR
Intensive physical exercise may be useful for reducing the need for contracture release in children with extensive burns when used as an adjunct therapy in postburn rehabilitation.
