Abstract

Two methods of autograft donor site management were tested in 31 patients with burn injuries. Two donor sites of equivalent size were respectively covered with Biobrane and Scarlet Red, two commercial dressing materials available for donor wound coverage. Pain, the amount and type of exudate developing underneath the dressing, adherence, and cellulitis were evaluated on a daily basis, and healing time was determined. Biobrane proved superior to Scarlet Red with respect to control of pain, accumulation of exudate, and healing time; the materials were equal with regard to adherence to the wound, the character of exudate, and the appearance of cellulitis.
