The Journal Burns has published a systematic review conducted by femu entitled: "Direct current electrical injuries: A systematic review of case reports and case series". This review aimed at systematically summarizing the medical consequences of direct current (DC) electrical injuries described in case reports and case series. The analysis showed that it was not possible to identify well defined medical consequences for various circumstances of DC electrical injuries due few available data and partly incomplete documentations. To achieve this goal, additional studies are required, each providing a comprehensive description of the medical consequences and the circumstances of the electrical injuries.
