battle injury, burn surgery, Damage Control Surgery


Burn injury differs from other types of trauma by the apparent lack of urgency for treatment. In order to limit physio­logical damage and multiple organ dysfunction syndrome, the management of the burn wound must be immediate and aggressive. When associated with other battle trauma, major burn injury has a detrimental effect on morbidity and mortality, and surgical management of both aspects of a patient’s injuries are altered. The use of differentiated surgical approaches led to a reduction in complications from 23.5 to 11.8 % (p = 0.453) compared with the group, who only used the traditional tactics of one-stage elimination of all injuries.
