Duoderm, an alternative dressing for smaller burns.

In this study Duoderm has been used for the treatment of superficial and deep partial thickness burns in 61 patients. In 15 patients a second similar burn was treated with human allografts or silver sulphadiazine cream. Five very small full skin thickness burned areas were also treated with Duoderm. Treatment with Duoderm had to be stopped before total epithelial cover had occurred in 3 patients. Duoderm is a very good alternative for the treatment of smaller superficial and deep partial thickness burns, since it provides very good results, both cosmetically and functionally, combined with fast re-epithelialization and comfort for the patients.
