Post burn contracture release is required in all patients with functional deficit of the affected region, however timely intervention is required to preserve the form and function of involved area. We hereby share our experience of 136 patients of PBC release, out of which 71 contractures were released before 1 year of initial burn injury. Though postoperative splintage and physiotherapy was required for around 1 year in 21 cases, final outcome was good in view of preservation of form and function.
