                                        Adipose-derived stem cells improve grafted burn wound healing by promoting wound bed blood flow

                                        Researchers have explored the use of adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) as a cell-based therapy to cover wounds in burn patients; however, underlying mechanistic aspects are not completely understood. We hypothesized that ASCs would improve post-burn wound healing after eschar excision and grafting by increasing wound blood flow via induction of angiogenesis-related pathways.

                                        Over the past 10 years, our understanding on the pathogenesis of scars and inflammatory scars such as keloids and hypertrophic scars has improved markedly. This thematic series introduces the most advanced scar therapies by surgery and laser treatments to expand specialists’ knowledge.

                                        Traumatic peripheral nerve injury is a worldwide clinical issue with high morbidity. The severity of peripheral nerve injury can be classified as neurapraxia, axonotmesis or neurotmesis, according to Seddon’s classification, or five different degrees according to Sunderland’s classification. Patients with neurotmesis suffer from a complete transection of peripheral nerve stumps and are often in need of surgical repair of nerve defects.

                                        Keloids are benign fibroproliferative skin lesions that are difficult to treat and become a lifetime predicament for patients. Several treatment modalities have been put forth, but as yet no satisfactory approach to the prevention or treatment of keloids has been identified.

                                        Itch and pain are common complaints of patients with burn injuries. This study aimed to describe the prevalence and predictors of itch and moderate to severe pain in the first 12 months following a burn injury, and determine the association between itch, moderate to severe pain, work-related outcomes, and health-related quality of life following a burn injury.
