This study examines the nature of skeletal muscle weakness (dysfunction) that is exhibited by patients who have incurred large-size body surface area burns (greater than 30%). It uses the mouse model of scald-burn injury in which groups of mice with varying burn sizes (i.e., 20%, 30%, and 50%) and time-matched controls were evaluated on postburn day 21. The primary purpose of this work was to evaluate secondary messenger cascades in gastrocnemius muscle relative to increasing burn size. Muscles… CONTINUE READING
