Figure 3: Perineal contracture managed with skin grafting. (a) A 6-year-old boy with a tight and broad contracting band in the perineum. (b) Contracture was released, and bilateral raw areas were split skin grafted. Long silk threads are in place for “bolster dressing.” (c) Showing postoperative result several months after surgery. A small contracting band is seen in the perineum. The compliance of abduction splints in this region is low and this results in a higher incidence of recurrence. This contracting band can now be released by a Z-plasty
