Abstract

Electrical burns can be divided into flash or typical thermal injury and high-tension injury. The latter is usually caused by greater than 1000 volts and produces a clinically characteristic entry and exit wound. The optimal management of patients with high-tension electrical injury has evolved into a plan of urgent exploration and debridement, aggressive redebridement, and early wound closure.
