Post Burn Contractures of Neck

  • Post Burn Contractures of Neck

Description of disability:

Post-burn neck contracture (PBC) is one of the most common burn sequela. These contractures affect the patient significantly causing both functional limitations and esthetic disfigurements.

Treatment:

Release of the neck contractures was first undertaken because they were severely restricting the range of motion of his neck. The thick scarred tissues were excised and split skin grafts harvested from his thigh were applied.

Grafts taken up well and advised local creams and massage for complete incorporation into the surrounding skin.

Post operative care: 

Rest and immobilization of the part by wearing a neck collar, keeping the neck extended, are essential.
