Burn healing is dependent on burn site : a quantitative analysis from a porcine burn model
Wang, Xue-Qing, Liu, Pei-Yun, Kempf, Margit, Cuttle, Leila, Chang, Allen Hong-En, Wong, Michael, Kravchuk, Olena, Mill, Julie, & Kimble, Roy M. (2009) Burn healing is dependent on burn site : a quantitative analysis from a porcine burn model. Burns, 35(2), pp. 264-269.
This retrospective review examines healing in different sites on a porcine burn model; 24 pairs of burns on 18 pigs from other animal trials were selected for analysis. Each pair of burns was located on the either the cranial or the caudal part of the thoracic ribs region, on the same side of the animal. The burns were 40-50 cm(2) in size and of uniform deep-dermal partial thickness. Caudal burns healed significantly better than cranial burns, demonstrated by earlier closure of wounds, less scar formation and better cosmesis. To our knowledge, this is the first detailed study reporting that burn healing is affected by location on a porcine burn model. We recommend that similar symmetrical burns should be used for future comparative assessments of burn healing.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
