VANA, Luiz Philipe Molina; FONTANA, Carlos  y  GEMPERLI, Rolf. Updating and systematization of sequelae in burns. Cir. plást. iberolatinoam. [online]. 2020, vol.46, suppl.1, pp.97-106.  Epub 22-Jun-2020. ISSN 1989-2055.

Background and objective

We define burn sequelae as any abnormal body condition related to or resulting from a burn, functional when lead to any limitation of function and non-functional when the sequel still exists but there is no limitation of function, formerly called aesthetic sequelae.

The present study proposes a systematization of reasoning in the treatment of burn sequelae in order to facilitate and establish a standardization of care and of the surgical schedule of patients.


We conduct a study in the burn sequelae outpatient clinic of the Hospital das Clinicas at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of São Paulo (Brazil), treating 640 patients and generating a systematization of care for patients with burn sequelae.


Due to the difficulty in treating burn sequelae, we developed an algorithm where the teaching of concepts and logical reasoning became easy. The standardization of procedures made the treatment of burn sequelae reproducible, easy to understand by plastic surgeons and even improving the results. In this way, we believe that academic training becomes easier and more effective.


Standardized medical reasoning and algorithms are a powerful weapon and simple and effective auxiliary methods to obtain consistent results in the daily practice of medicine.
