Intermediate skin substitutes are unnecessary in small (<10% tbsa) burns

from Physician Weekly

The use of intermediate skin substitutes between debridement and final autografting is routine for many practitioners. Materials such as xenografts and allografts have been promoted to help with wound coverage before autografting. However there is limited data for their use in relatively small burn wounds (<10% total body surface area, TBSA). In this study, we analyzed the outcomes of one hundred consecutive patients who underwent autografting for burns <10% TBSA at our ABA verified burn unit in the absence of intermediate skin substitute use. more
