This Special Issue will focus on reconstruction after burn injury, highlighting aspects of a holistic approach, which starts with primary treatment. It then continues through the phases of scar maturation into the longer term of both surgical and other treatments, progressively indicated with growth and the need for promotion of physical and social reintegration.
Our goal is to elucidate and showcase the concept of a ‘Plastic Surgical’ approach to the care of people with burn injuries, and thus help to ensure burns patients have access to a range of the best practice reconstructive techniques and procedures as part of their rehabilitation. We welcome submissions on workforce and service configuration, clinical reports, and experimental and research articles on all aspects of burns treatments aimed at improving scarring and its sequelae. Up-to-date reviews and commentaries are also welcome.
