High-Voltage Electrical Injuries Management and Outcome of 60 Cases
AbstractABSTRACT: High-voltage electrical injuries, though uncommon, are not rare and make up approximately 3% of hospital admissions for burns. Our review of a seven-year experience including treatment of 60 patients indicates that the mortality for hospitalized patients is low, but the complication rate is significant. Sepsis or wound infection occurred in one third and neurologic impairment in one fourth of the patients. Despite this, most patients are able to return to gainful employment.
