Mathematic model to estimate change in burn scar length required for joint range of motion.

Abstract

Burn scar contracture results from an insufficient amount of extensible tissue to permit complete range of motion. The purpose of this study was to develop a mathematic model to estimate additional tissue length required for full range of motion in the presence of a scar contracture. Seven areas with a known predilection for burn scar contracture were… (More)
