Abstract: This paper analyses two groups of patients with only dorsal hand burns: groups I contains patients with a total of 15 burned hands and group II patients with 12 hand burns. The patients in group I were all treated by full sheet skin grafts using a two-component fibrin glue. Patients in group II underwent the traditional operative treatment without fibrin glue and the same postoperative physical therapy programme. After follow-up periods of 6-11 months (group I) and 12-21 months (group II), we investigated in both groups, grip strength, key pinch, mobility, two-point discrimination and with the Semmes-Weinstein monofilaments. Our results prove that after the respective follow-up periods group I patients developed far better results for two-point discrimination, touch recognition and mobility.
