Resumen

SANDOVAL, José Hernando; BALMELLI FORNO, Bruno  y  ZAPUTOVICH, Saul. Use of amniotic membrane and meek graft in a child with severe burns. An. Fac. Cienc. Méd. (Asunción) [online]. 2021, vol.54, n.1, pp.137-142. ISSN 1816-8949.  https://doi.org/10.18004/anales/2021.054.01.137.

Early debridement followed by coverage with autologous skin has been shown to reduce mortality in burn patients. In patients with extensive burns, the lack of areas of donor skin is a limiting factor at the time of treatment. The fact that a complete debridement and coverage cannot be achieved in the first stage favors the infection of the burn and septicemia, which can have dire consequences. Therefore, it is necessary to have other options than partial skin mesh grafts, the standard treatment today. We present the clinical case of a child with severe burns and describe the results obtained with the use of the amniotic membrane as temporary covering and the MEEK-type mesh graft.
