Before 1988, survival of adults with burns > or = 75% total body surface area was uncommon in our burn unit. In 1988 a revised treatment plan for adult patients with burns > or = 75% was instituted. This plan included rapid disciplined eschar removal to fascia within 7 days, sequential meshed autografting with concomitant fresh allograft application, and early enteral feedings.
