Role of low level laser therapy in take of full thickness skin graft in post burn contracture

All deeper burns i.e. second degree deep dermal and full thickness heals by scarring that causes restrictions in the movements and aesthetics issues for patients. Burn reconstructive surgery requires that the defects after release should be replaced with donor tissues which have matching texture and colour like autologous skin grafting or flap surgeries. Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) has been used in different fields, including healing of, diabetic and pressure ulcers. Here we are using this method to look for role in take of FTSG post burn contracture.Full-thickness skin grafts include full thickness of the epidermis and dermis whereas split-thickness skin grafts (STSG) include the entire epidermis and only partial dermis. The main complication of this procedure is risk of graft failure. LLLT improves tissue perfusion and fibroblast proliferation, with increases in collagen synthesis accelerating wound healing. The purpose of this case report is introducing LLLT as a therapeutic method for accelerating take of FTSG in post burn contracture with better prognosis.
