PMID:  815724     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A rational approach to the restoration of function of the upper extremity has been outlined for the burned patient. If these guidelines are followed and the joints of the upper extremity approached individually with a goal of restoring as much range of motion as possible, great functional improvement may be anticipated. The surgical procedures must be augmented with vigorous PT and strong patient motivation. With this combination improvement of function of the upper extremity can be provided that is gratifying to both the surgeon and the patient.
