Abstract

From 1966 to 1982, 529 children with second and third degree burns were treated at the Mainz University Hospital of Pediatric Surgery. 61% of the patients presented with second degree burns and 39% with third degree burns. Each fifth patient suffered from a critical burn. In one third of all cases a surgical treatment (abrasion method) was performed primarily; two thirds of the patients underwent a conservative treatment (open or closed procedures). In a follow-up study 248 children (46.9% were reexamined on the basis of an own control-pattern for the comparison of the different treatment methods. In patients with second degree burns the late results were excellent in 66% and good in 34%; in third degree burns the late results were good in 51%, middling in 36% and poor in 13%. Regarding the local treatment procedures, the late results of patients with second and third degree burns covering more than 10% of the body surface were better when abrasion method had been performed than late results of patients with open air or closed treatment. Beside the well-known patho-physiological and diagnostic advantages, the late results, too, favour the abrasion method as the treatment of first choice especially in burns affecting more than 10% of the body surface.
