Abstract:
A major burn presents numerous short and long-term challenges to the burn and reconstructive surgeon. INTEGRA® Dermal Regeneration Template is a standard intervention for acute and reconstructive management of burns in our unit, beginning in 2000. We have previously presented our experience in 2004 and 2011 both at ANZBA and internationally. Since 2011 we have built upon our unit experience of INTEGRA® use especially in major paediatric burns. Over this period we have continued to improve our management techniques.

We present an update of our caseload and outcomes as well as experiences and lessons learnt from the use of INTEGRA® Dermal Regeneration Template. Associated complications and suggested management, as well as a treatment algorithm for the use of INTEGRA in the acute management of a major paediatric burn is discussed.
