Shewanella putrefaciens is an opportunistic pathogen rarely responsible for human infection. However, it has been reported that it causes skin and soft tissue infections and bacteremia in immune-compromised patients, such as cellulitis, abscesses, bacteremia, and wound infection. It is an oxidase and catalase-positive non-fermenter gram-negative rod that produces hydrogen sulfide. We report the case of a 90-year-old woman, who presented an invasive infectious burn wound associated with Shewanella putrefaciens bacteremia...

Resistance to carpabenems in burns is rapidly spreading in many countries. Therefore identification of carbapenemase pathogen carriers is imperative in order to establish adequate infection control precautions and stop outbreaks of these multidrug-resistant bacteria. The aim of our study was to evaluate the distribution of carbapenemase producers in burn patients admitted to a burn center in Tunisia over 9 months. PCR for carbapenemase portage was performed in all patients within 48 hours of admission. Seventeen patients carried a single carbapenemase, 11 carried two, and 25 carried three...

Susceptibility to infection and increased antibiotic resistance place burn patients at risk of infection caused by multidrug-resistant organisms (MDRO). This condition can progress to sepsis, which can increase morbidity and mortality. A retrospective cohort study using medical record data of patients treated at RSUPN dr. Cipto Mangunkusumo in the period January 2020 to June 2022 was conducted. Of a total 160 subjects in the study period, 82.5% were aged <60 years, 16.88% had comorbidities, the most common cause of burns was fire (86...

Carbon monoxide poisoning is one of the leading causes of mortality and morbidity by poisoning in the world. Signs and symptoms are nonspecific and related to impaired oxygen delivery to tissues, with the brain being the most affected organ due to its high oxygen demand. CO-Hb is a poor indicator of severity and long-term outcome, with clinicians relying more on clinical features such as level of consciousness and need for intubation, organ dysfunction and shock and also pH level. A 45-year-old female was found unconscious in her home with the fireplace lit and smoke all over the house...

When compared to standard surgical management, rapid enzymatic debridement of deep burns reduces the need for surgery while achieving similar long-term results. However, few studies have directly compared the costs of standard surgical and enzymatic burn care. We conducted a study comparing the care costs of 44 adult burn patients treated before (n=22) and after (n=22) introducing rapid bromelain-based enzymatic debridement (BED) of deep burns. Mean age was 59 years, 54% were male, and mean total body surface area (TBSA) was 23...

Loss of sensitivity in the operated area is common after some plastic surgery procedures and promotes accidental trauma on a daily basis. Several studies showed that a loss of sensitivity is constant after an abdominoplasty. We report here the cases of three 3rd degree burns by contact, at the subumbilical level, with a hot water bottle soon after an abdominoplasty, responsible for significant aesthetic sequelae.

Sternal non-union is a rare complication of median sternotomies following cardiac surgery. It results in sternal instability and is associated with a high rate of morbidity. Patients with sternal non-union usually complain of pain and sternal clicking with movement of the chest wall. Diagnosis is confirmed on computed tomography showing a gap between two sternal halves. Surgical correction of sternal instability is challenging. The key objective is to reconstruct a thoracic cage that allows for biomimesis and preserves normal physiologic cardiac and pulmonary functions all whilst achieving an aesthetically pleasing result...

The acute management of deep burns to the dorsum of the hand and fingers represents a challenge for the reconstructive surgeon. The exposure of osteo-tendinous structures often requires flap coverage, in a context where loco-regional or free flaps are not always feasible. The aims of reconstruction are to preserve a maximum of digital length, provide supple tissue, obtain protective sensitivity, and achieve a functional hand at 1 year. We report here on a series of 8 deep burns to the dorsum of the hand. Six hands were covered by Colson abdominal flap-graft and two by pedicled inguinal flap...
