Abstract

Biobrane®, a synthetic, bicomposite wound dressing, has been used to treat 17 patients with partial thickness burn wounds covering 0·5-12·5 per cent of the total body surface area (mean 4·4 per cent). In 16 patients we found complete healing of the wound after removal of the dressing, 6-15 days after the injury. In one patient, the wounds were determined on the third day post-injury to be deeper than initially suspected, and she was taken to the operating room for surgical debridement and grafting. Biobrane is an effective wound covering for clean, superficial partial thickness burns of limited extent; the simultaneous use of topical antimicrobial agents for such wounds is not necessary.
