We are honored to present this Special Issue of the European Burn Journal, dedicated to reconstructive surgery. All submissions are peer-reviewed, and accepted papers will be published immediately.
Worldwide, burns remain a common injury with the potential for a significant loss of function and lifelong scarring. One of the major concerns patients, relatives, and friends share following a burn injury relates to the uniquely disfiguring consequences of burn injury and the impact that this will have on their lives. These challenges are especially marked in children and adolescents as they navigate through childhood and puberty.
This Special Issue will focus on new developments and updates of burn-wound reconstructive surgery, from initial debridement, preserving as much viable dermis as possible, burn wound closure, alternatives to autologous tissues, and burn scar remodeling, including laser, micro-needling techniques, and contracture release.
Basic science, clinical research, and contemporary review articles are all welcome.
