A new era of outcomes for pediatric burn patients has begun as burn care continues to improve. Unfortunately, complete restoration of burn-injured skin may be limited by the development of...
In a burn population, conduct a prospective, double-blinded, randomized, controlled clinical trial to determine the ability of spray silicone to alter the physical characteristics of burn ...
The aim of this study is to understand why the regeneration of the cutaneous sensory nerve fibers is poor in post-burn scar. The presence or the lack of several molecular factors known to...
Graft versus host disease (GVHD) is a common complication of allogeneic stem cell transplant.Chronic GVHD is characterized by skin thickening and tightening. Advanced sclerosis can lead to...
The purpose of this study is to determine if using a DERMAL LAYER under skin grafts: 1. will reduce scar formation of skin grafts 2. will reduce burn wound contractures 3. w...
The aim of the study was to determine the longitudinal validity, reproducibility, responsiveness and interpretability of the adult version of the Brisbane Burn Scar Impact Profile, a patient-report me...
Fractional laser therapy is a new treatment with potential benefit in the treatment of burn scars. We sought to determine patient satisfaction after burn scar treatment with the Erbium-Yag laser.
Deep burn wounds have a high tendency to form hypertrophic scars. Previously, we found that angiogenin promoted neovascularization during deep burn wound healing. However, the association between angi...
Recent advances in laser surgery and our understanding of wound healing have ushered in a new era of trauma and burn scar management. Traditional therapy has centered around scar excision followed by ...
Skeletal muscle tissue is mechanosensitive, as it is able to sense mechanical impacts and to translate these into biochemical signals making the tissue adapt. Among its mechanosensitive nature, skelet...
A sharply elevated, irregularly shaped, progressively enlarging scar resulting from formation of excessive amounts of collagen in the dermis during connective tissue repair. It is differentiated from a hypertrophic scar (CICATRIX, HYPERTROPHIC) in that the former does not spread to surrounding tissues.
Specialized hospital facilities which provide intensive care for burn patients.
The new and thickened layer of scar tissue that forms on a PROSTHESIS, or as a result of vessel injury especially following ANGIOPLASTY or stent placement.
An elevated scar, resembling a KELOID, but which does not spread into surrounding tissues. It is formed by enlargement and overgrowth of cicatricial tissue and regresses spontaneously.
The shrinkage of the foreign body encapsulation scar tissue that forms around artificial implants imbedded in body tissues.
