The POSAS was developed in 2002 for the assessment of all different types of scar tissue. The POSAS enables a structured clinical evaluation of scar quality.
This website focuses on the POSASv2.0 which contains several small adaptation from earlier versions. Retrospectively we denominate the following versions of the POSAS:
POSASv1.0 by Draaijers et al. Plast. Reconstr. Surg. 2004 113: 1960-1965
