The relationship between burn depth, healing time and the development of hypertrophic scarring (HTS) is well recognised by burn surgeons but is seldom mentioned in the published literature. We studied 337 children with scalds whose scars were monitored for up to 5 years. Overall HTS rates were found to be: under 10 days to healing=0%, 10-14 days=8%, 15-21 days=20%, 22-25 days=40%, 26-30 days=68% and over 30 days=92%. In the conservatively treated group the HTS rates are: under 10 days=0%, 10-14… CONTINUE READING
