Abstract

Overall outcome following hand burns is closely related to the depth of injury. Although even full-thickness burns tend to result in favorable outcomes, injuries to the deeper structures may result in some degree of impairment. Reviewing the existing literature on hand burns clearly demonstrates the need for validated measurement tools for the evaluation of hand burn outcomes.
