Abstract

Pressure garments have been the mainstay of hypertrophic scar treatment since the 1970s. However, there are many problems associated with their use. This is the first in a series of papers on pressure garments that will review the literature published to date on the origins of pressure garments for hypertrophic scar treatment and the problems associated with current pressure garment use. © 2005 Elsevier Ltd and ISBI.
