Abstract

Electrical burns can be devastating and result in dreaded outcomes. Electrical burn is a common problem in our society and needs special attention because of its various modes of presentations, the numbers of organ systems involved, and the mortality associated in spite of the small percent of burns. The authors present a case of electrical burns with a posterolateral chest wall defect associated with blunt abdominal trauma that was successfully managed by debridement and pedicled omental flap over a synthetic prolene mesh.
