It will be great to see these scores improve with compression therapy (uvex, garments), therapy, surgery etc and time- we have the capability of linking the patient photos with these scores and body parts to visually show the impact of this clinic.
Worth mentioning- the neck (which historically has demonstrated the greatest international challenges that I have seen with severe contractures and scar formation) demonstrates the lowest modified VS results. This a result of early excision and grafting techniques by Dr Perera and her team! These results were clearly recognized by me during my brief stay but the numbers clearly validate it.
The thigh demonstrates the most problematic scores at present- which lends me to believe that we have donor site problems with issues around the dermatome and blade quality as we have seen elsewhere.
I would be very interested in hearing what your thoughts on the above scores are Chandini.
My hope is to have this database accessible via the web and implemented in all of our collective centers.
Great job team.
