Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We report on the use of a modified Schiotz tonometer to evaluate the effects of therapies on burn scars. It is now possible to quantify the course of cicatrization with tonometry. Because tonometry affords a precise evaluation of burn scar diagnosis and prognosis, it is possible to avoid arbitrary clinical evaluation of the burn scarring process.
