The Authors propose a classification for postburn deformities of the hand based on the different anatomical structures damaged by the burn injury. Possible surgical solutions to the most common clinical situations are presented. The efficacy of skin grafting for the correction of scar contractures of the hand is underlined, as long as the necessary orthopaedic and physiotherapic post-operative measures are carried out.
