This lovely 74 year old lady was using gasoline to burn leaves when the vapour set her alight. Her initial treatment at a private hospital included a stay of 12 days, 4 debridements in the O.R. and no occlusive (medical) dressings or contracture prevention. The cost of this “treatment” was 300,000 Philippine pesos!
Almost 1 year after the burn and with severe contractures, she arrived at Triple B Care Projects. Val was able to start treatments with Advasil Conforme Scar management gel sheets to soften and flatten the scars, and she connected her with Prof Peter Haertsche, Burns Surgeon with ANZ Interplast, who changed her life and looks at 75 years old!
Here she is today...happy, healthy, and grateful for ANZ Interplast and Triple B Care.
