Over the past decades, extraordinary advances have been made in the understanding of cellular and molecular processes involved in acute wound healing.
his knowledge has led to wound care innovations and new developments concerning burn care; burn care has improved to the extent that persons with burns can frequently survive.
he trend in current treatment extends beyond the preservation of life; the ultimate goal is the return of burn victims, as full participants, back into their families and communities.
he possibility of surviving burn injuries has changed dramatically over the past decades. One of the milestones was a more aggressive approach concerning surgery; early wound debridement and early wound coverage has led to a higher survival rate, but also to a higher number of patients, who will require reconstructive surgery and specialized after care.
I would like to express my deep appreciation to my co-editors, colleagues and friends for their distribution to this new book on burn reconstruction and rehabilitation. he authors have tried to achieve the highest degree in actuality and practical relevance within the ield of burn reconstruction and rehabilitation.
Moreover, this book demonstrates that successful burn treatment with good long time result is only Preface possible as a result of teamwork between diferent specialists and disciplines. his book ofers a quick orientation, but also profound overview about burn reconstruction and rehabilitation.
