Use of Biobrane in wound management.

Biologic dressings remain the gold standard for temporary wound coverage and closure and as a skin substitute. However, increasing interest has resulted in numerous synthetic wound dressings and skin substitutes modeled after biologic dressings. In 1979 Biobrane was introduced for commercial use in the treatment of burn wounds and donor sites. Biobrane is a biosynthetic wound dressing constructed of a silicone film with a nylon fabric partially embedded into the film. Collagen is incorporated in both the silicone and nylon components. The purpose of this conference is to evaluate the effectiveness of Biobrane as a wound dressing with the 15 years of clinical experience used to define the best indications for its present use.
