Abstract

Cadaver allograft skin, porcine xenograft skin, and amniotic membranes have been proved to be adequate temporary thermal wound coverings in four clinical situations: coverage of shallow wounds while awaiting epithelialization (SW), coverage of deep wounds after eschar excision (DEW), coverage of widely meshed autograft while awaiting closure of interstices (AC), and coverage of massive donor sites (DS). This study was undertaken to evaluate the therapeutic efficacy of a new biosynthetic bilaminate dressing, Biobrane. Two hundred one applications of Biobrane were studied in 82 SW, 46 DEW, 19 AC, 54 DS. A total of 124 applications were left in place until healing occurred, with a mean healing time of 12.8 days. Sixty of SW, 10/46 DEW, 10/19 AC, and 44/54 DS remained intact until complete healing. Only four DEW, two SW, and 0 AC applications had to be removed because of suppuration. Twenty five of the applications (SW and DEW) with the Biobrane glove had rare complications.
