Plaster Burn: Challenge to Plastic Surgeon
چکیده:   (476 مشاهده)

BACKGROUND
The thermal burn is accidental and also is the hidden and worst complication of medical plaster application. This study evaluated clinical and aetiological profile and severity of plaster burns.
METHODS
In Department of Burns, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery from 1st August 2014 to 31st December 2015, six patients with plaster burn were assessed for total body surface area and depth of burn. The wounds were cultured and dressed with moist dressings daily till the surgical procedure and satisfactory healing.
RESULTS
The youngest patient was 10 and oldest 65 years (mean age: 40.20±6.67 years, 4 males and two females with ratio of 2:1). Three patients sustained plaster burn injury accidentally at home and 3 developed burn after medical application of plaster. The hands burns were observed commonly in accidental plaster burns, while ankle was often involved in iatrogenic plaster burns. The iatrogenic burns were mostly deep in thickness varying 2nd to 4th degree, while accidental burns were often 2nd degree. Superficial 2nd degree burns were managed conservatively, and deep 2nd degree burns were skin grafted. Fourth degree burn was managed with reverse sural flap alone and another with vacuum-assisted closure followed by reverse sural flap and skin grafting.
CONCLUSION
Plaster burn is still a challenge to plastic surgeon and it is advised for applying casts to utilize all available means to limit the amount of casting material provided. It can be accomplished without compromising the cast strength to minimize the risk of thermal injury when applying plaster or composite casts.
