Jayawardena, A., Lowery, A., Wooten, C., et al. (2019). Early Surgical Management of Thermal Airway Injury: A Case Series. (Abstract only.) Journal of Burn Care and Research. 40(2):189-195.
The authors discuss three cases of burns to the airway and found that in all cases the thermal injury was subsequently superseded by the immune response and scarring. The article discusses antibiotic use in two patients and the use of skin graft in the third.
