About the book

Burns is a type of traumatic injury caused by excessive heat due to electrical, thermal, chemical, or electromagnetic energy. Burn injuries are classified on the basis of wound depth and severity. Severe burn injuries are difficult to treat and therefore various methods are used for better care of wounds and healing. Extensive forms of burns such as full-thickness burns if not treated properly may result in loss of body parts or even death. Recently, the development of novel approaches for burn wound care and management has significantly reduced morbidity and mortality. The burn injury treatment options have shifted to more multidisciplinary approaches. Availability and applications of various types of off-the-shelf skin substitutes have played pivotal roles in the treatment of severe dermal and full-thickness wounds of various etiologies. Applications of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine have further improved the treatment, healing, and closure of acute and chronic skin burn wounds. Treatment of visible skin scars and contractures highlights the important contribution of plastic and aesthetic surgeons. Burn wounds are difficult to manage in the elderly as persons with various diseases such as diabetes and therefore require advanced therapies.

This book intends to provide basic information on severe burn wound management using novel treatment options highlighting the role of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine applications.
