Translated title of the contribution: Guidelines for treatment of burns on the female breast

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We often see burn injuries to the anterior chest wall, especially in children. In female patients this will lead to problems in development of the breast, such as dislocations and underdevelopment. In most of these, extreme disfiguring can often be avoided by constant control during the growing period. This enables us to cure minor initial problems such as scar contracture and dislocation by comparatively minor operations so that natural breast development can take place. By these measures major procedures in adulthood can be avoided.
