A Randomized, Prospective Study of the Treatment of Superficial Partial-Thickness Burns: AWBAT-S Versus Biobrane.

Greenwood JE - Eplasty (2011)

Bottom Line: The aim of this study was to prospectively evaluate AWBAT-S in comparison with Biobrane for the treatment of superficial partial-thickness burns using the patient as his or her own control.Primary outcome measures included length of hospital inpatient stay and patient-reported perception of pain.Secondary outcome measures included time to healing, clinical outcome of burn sites (scarring) and a comparison of cost of care for patients treated with AWBAT-S versus Biobrane.

Primary outcome measures included length of hospital inpatient stay and patient-reported perception of pain. Secondary outcome measures included time to healing, clinical outcome of burn sites (scarring) and a comparison of cost of care for patients treated with AWBAT-S versus Biobrane.

The wrinkling appearance that affected some AWBAT-S in the early stages                        belies complete adherence.

Figure 2: The wrinkling appearance that affected some AWBAT-S in the early stages belies complete adherence.

Mentions: With small study numbers (n = 12), the mean time to healing between the groups was not significantly different (Biobrane, 10.17 ± 2.33 days compared with AWBAT-S, 9.58 ± 2.39 days, P = .09—Table 2). This might achieve significance with larger study groups. There were some features of healing under AWBAT-S, which made the material different to Biobrane, such as wrinkling, which gave the appearance of linear nonadherence and caused concern in a few early patients (Fig 2). This occurred despite the AWBAT-S being applied flat and under tension. It usually settled by day 5. Once these differences were appreciated, AWBAT-S was as easy to manage as Biobrane.
