Burn injuries can occur during routine tasks like cooking or in workplace accidents, and they are rather frequent. While some burn injuries are not serious, some can have catastrophic consequences.
According to the World Health Organization, these injuries are responsible for over 1,80,000 fatalities per year (WHO). Any exposure of the skin or other organic tissue to heat, chemicals, radiation, friction, or electricity results in burn damage.
Burn wounds may cause intense agony and require time to recover. Skin grafting may be necessary for extreme situations as part of the therapy for burn injuries.
In addition to this, additional procedures are becoming available that may aid the patient’s early functional and aesthetic recovery.
Burn wounds could be treated using stem cell treatment. The angiogenesis and anti-inflammatory effects of stem cell treatment play a major role in the healing of burn wounds.
Stem cells are viewed as the body’s building blocks for the production of some of the other cells with specialized roles.
These cells may be directed to develop into certain cells that can subsequently be utilized to regenerate and repair human tissue, which will eventually heal wounds.
A portion of the patient’s healthy skin is utilized to replace the granulation tissue in other treatments like skin grafting. The skin transplant might also come from animals or deceased donors.
Plastic surgery is occasionally performed on people whose faces or other parts have been damaged by burn burns. The overall flexibility of joints damaged by the scarring is also improved by the procedure.
