Abstract

Compression garments used in the therapy for hypertrophic scars must be individually fitted in order to guarantee a sufficient pressure of on average 26 mmHg. Incorrectly measured compression garments lead to the development of highly hypertrophic scars. Our results also showed that compression garments must be changed regularly because of the natural loss of pressure. Only an individual compression therapy can guarantee perfect cosmetic as well as surgical results.
