Objective: To investigate the clinical application and efficacy of VSD for treating electric burn of four extremities.

 

Methods: From December 2008, there were 30 cases with electric burn of four extremities. These cases were given with VSD dressings to cover wound surface after emergency debridement. After continuous vacuum suction with aspirator for 7 to 10 days, VSD was removed, and the patients were taken stage II skin grafting or skin flap transplantation.

 

Results: In these 30 cases, there were 20 cases with alive flaps after once VSD treatment and taking stage II skin grafting or flap transplantation; 10 cases with alive flaps after twice VSD treatment.

 

Conclusion: After early debridement, external application of VSD and stage II skin grafting or flap transplantation can achieve satisfactory efficacy for electric burn of four extremities, and it is an ideal treatment method.
