The Art and Science of Burn Wound Management
The management of burn injuries, like many other medical disciplines, is still a developing science. However in the last three decades there has been a decrease in the incidence of major burns, and an improved quality of life of burn victims. In the past decade, most progress in burns care has been made to give us better understanding of the pathophysiology of the burn wound, and the development of innovative methods of wound management. This book focuses on this aspect of burns care, highlighting the recent advances in pathophysiology as well as early wound closure, biological dressings and the development of skin substitutes. Constructed in three parts, with clear high quality photographs in each chapter, the Art and Science of Burn Wound Management will serve plastic surgeons, dermatologists, trauma care departments and specialist libraries worldwide.
