ObjectivesPerineal and buttock burns are challenging wounds given risk of local contamination and difficulty in achieving stable dressings. These burns present unique hurdles in the elderly, given associated co- morbidities and frailty, which can negatively impact patient outcome. This study aimed to evaluate patient demographics, management and length of stay (LOS).MethodsA retrospective review of patients over 65 years with perineal or buttock burns in regional burns unit over 3 year period was performed. Patient with burns over 30% or who died from their injuries were excluded. Medical records were reviewed to assess patient age, sex, injury mechanism, total body surface area (TBSA), depth of burn, management approach and LOS.Results40 patients presented over 3 years with 22 male patients and 18 female patients. The average patient age was 79 years. 32 patients had buttock burns with the majority (15 patients) sustaining a deep dermal burn. The majority (26 patients) had scald injuries. Buttock burns resulted in an average 3.77 day LOS per TBSA. 6 patients were managed surgically. 27 patients were managed conservatively.8 patients sustained a perineal burn. 6 patients had a scald injury. 5 patients had superficial dermal thickness burns with average LOS per TBSA being 0.55 days. 1 patient was managed surgically, requiring an 11 day stay for a 7% flame burn resulting in 1.57 day LOS per TBSA. 7 patients were managed conservatively with a 0.15 day LOS per 1%TBSA.ConclusionsScald burns are a prominent mechanism of burn injury. Buttock burns are associated with deep dermal burns and perineal burns with superficial dermal thickness burns. This informs pattern recognition of these burns in the elderly demographic. Buttock burns required a longer inpatient stay (3.77 days) compared to perineal burns (0.55 days). Perineal burns managed conservatively result in a shorter hospital stay.
