Abstract :

              Burn wound closure requires a good understanding of the wound, it’s anatomy, physiology and the phases of wound healing.  Improvement of general condition & nutritional status, infection control proper and prompt nursing care are all important elements in achieving good wound cover. This goal is achievable only through the interdisciplinary approach towards burn wound healing. The armamentarium includes a variety of techniques from conservative management to reconstructive techniques using the “reconstructive ladder”. This article summarises the components of the reconstructive ladder for burn wound closure that are available to the reconstructive surgeon.
