First web space widening is crucial in the reconstruction of severe thermal burn contracture of the hand. We describe our experience with various methods of coverage following release of contracture in form of split thickness skin graft (STSG) and Z plasty in total 16 patients over three years. Splintage is a crucial part of our management and was given by thermoplastic splints. We were able to achieve good functional and cosmetic outcomes with minimal morbidity. We conclude that good functional results can be obtained by simple procedure of STSG & Z plasty if proper post op splintage is maintained.
