BiobraneTM is a popular biosynthetic semi-permeable skin substitute conventionally applied onto non-excised partial thickness burn wounds to facilitate healing. The use of BiobraneTM for definitive coverage after excision of partial-thickness thermal burns has not been reported. We highlighted our experience of immediate BiobraneTM application for definitive coverage of tangentially-excised partial thickness thermal burn wounds in four patients. This technique is safe and efficient, minimizes painful and costly dressing changes, avoids the complications associated with autologous skin grafting, and eliminates the unpredictability of burns wound conversion. We believe this method expands the indications for BiobraneTM usage, accelerates wound healing, and provides better aesthetic outcomes.
