Burn surgery has gone through revolutionary changes during the last century, even the most severe burns can now be safely treated. Modern surgical treatments have been followed by improvements in intensive burn care and anaesthesiology. These developments have allowed immediate surgery within 24 hours of the injury to take place in our centre, therefore obtaining advantageous results in shortening hospital stay, improving patient’s functional results and simplifying the treatment itself. This treatment is economically beneficial as well. In future we count on rapid development of a new discipline, tissue engineering, which should take a greater role in burn care.
