The present study was designed to examine the prevalence and characteristics of painful and paresthetic sensations in a group of patients with healed burns. Adult patients who had been hospitalized for burn injuries during a 7-yr period were contacted and given a structured interview that included a series of questions about their present condition.(More)
Problems of pain and paresthesia in the healed wounds of burn patients are an understudied and poorly documented phenomenon.
