Deep and extensive burns of lower extremities present a difficult challenge to healthcare professionals.In dealing with such complex wounds, which are difficult to treat, several authors have recommended the combined use of Integra® and negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT). They emphasize that NPWT eliminates wound exudate, promotes neovascularisation and cell migration through the Integra® matrix while increasing its stability and adherence to the wound bed, as well as decreasing the time needed for its total integration. The case presented here is of a patient with major third-degree flame burns to the lower extremities.
