Treatment of severe postburn kyphosis with combined plastic surgery and milwaukee bracing

STUDY DESIGN: A case is reported in which severe postburn kyphosis is treated with combined plastic surgery and Milwaukee bracing. OBJECTIVES: To demonstrate that severe kyphosis can develop secondary to burn scars and that spine surgery can be avoided. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Nothing is available in the literature on this subject. METHODS: A 14-year-old boy had severe burns of the arms, anterior neck, and anterior torso with a resulting 90 degrees stiff kyphosis. RESULTS: The patient was treated by multiple plastic surgery procedures combined with a Milwaukee brace, which corrected his kyphosis to a normal alignment. CONCLUSIONS: Spine surgery was avoided with quality plastic surgery and Milwaukee brace management
