Featured article: Identification of factors predicting scar outcome after burn injury in children

Prevention of hypertrophic scarring is an important focus of burn research. However, there is a lack of rigorous research investigating the factors that influence scar outcome in children. This prospective study examined the association between selected patient, injury and clinical factors and the development of raised scar in pediatric burns, which suggests that greater burn surface area, time to healing of longer than 14 days and multiple operations are independently associated with raised scar in children after burn injury.
