Paediatric Partial-Thickness Burn Therapy: A Meta-Analysis and Systematic Review of Randomised Controlled Trials
TLDR
Investigation of the performance of dressings in acute paediatric partial-thickness burns found a tendency for faster healing times and a reduced complication rate linked to biosynthetic, silver foam and amnion membrane dressings.
The treatment of paediatric burns with concentrated surfactant gel technology: a case series.
TLDR
It was found that the surfactant gel technology assisted in autolytic debridement, and that time to re-epithelialisation was short and within the range of those obtained with other established treatments.
First-Line Interactive Wound Dressing Update: A Comprehensive Review of the Evidence
TLDR
There is lack of high quality evidence and the need for future well designed trials on physical properties of wound dressing products, including semipermeable films, foams, hydroactives, alginates, hydrofibers, hydrocolloids, and hydrogels.
Outpatient Burn Care: Prevention and Treatment.
TLDR
Patients with diabetes mellitus are at increased risk of complications and infection, and early referral to a burn center should be considered, and patient education during primary care visits may be an effective prevention strategy.
Recent advancements in cellulose-based biomaterials for management of infected wounds
TLDR
Cellulose-based dressings loaded with antimicrobials are very useful in controlling infection in a chronic wound and recent studies showing its efficacy against drug-resistant bacteria make it a favorable choice for chronic wound infections.
Role of systemic antibiotic prophylaxis and burn dressings in preventing invasive burn infections – A systematic review
TLDR
Systemic antibiotic prophylaxis can be given to patients of inhalational burn injury and as a pre-operative prophYLaxis but not for preventing invasive burn wound infections.
Recent trends on burn wound care: hydrogel dressings and scaffolds.
TLDR
The challenges in burn wound management, several crucial design considerations with respect to hydrogel for burn wound healing, and available polymers for hydrogels in burn wounds care are discussed.
Fabrication and characterisation of a wound dressing composed of polyvinyl alcohol and quince seed mucilage.
TLDR
The findings of the current study support the potential of PVA/QSM nanofibres as a proper candidate for biomedical applications, especially as a wound dressing.

Dressings for superficial and partial thickness burns.
TLDR
The use of silver sulphadiazine as a comparator on burn wounds for the full duration of treatment needs to be reconsidered, as a number of studies showed delays in time to wound healing and increased number of dressing applications in patients treated with SSD dressings.
Clinical evaluation of a silver-impregnated foam dressing in paediatric partial-thickness burns.
TLDR
The silver-impregnated foam dressing was used successfully for the treatment of partial-thickness paediatric burns, with few complications and infections, allowing a shorter hospital stay, fewer dressings, and less pain medication than for historical controls.
Silver sulfadiazine for the treatment of partial-thickness burns and venous stasis ulcers.
Use of wound dressings with soft silicone adhesive technology.
TLDR
The ability of Mepilex Border Lite to overcome the clinical challenges associated with the use of dressings on the wounds/skin injuries of paediatric patients is demonstrated and further evidence of the ability of Dressings with Safetac soft silicone adhesive technology to minimise trauma and pain is provided.
Beneficial effects of silver foam dressing on healing of wounds with ulcers and infection control of burn patients
TLDR
Silver foam dressing rapidly, easily and safely resisted wound bacteria, promoted wound healing and shortened recovery time, effectively relieving the pain of patients.
Cost-Effectiveness Comparison Between Topical Silver Sulfadiazine and Enclosed Silver Dressing for Partial-Thickness Burn Treatment
TLDR
By varying complication rates for SSD and enclosed silver dressings, the two-way sensitivity analysis demonstrated the cost effectiveness of using enclosed silver dressing at the majority of complications rates for both treatment modalities.
Silver dressings: their role in wound management

TLDR
There are good indications for the use of silver dressings, to remove or reduce an increasing bioburden in burns and open wounds healing by secondary intention, or to act as a barrier against cross contamination of resistant organisms such as MRSA.
Silver-containing foam dressings with Safetac: a review of the scientific and clinical data.
TLDR
In vitro test results showed that the silver-containing foam dressings with Safetac have both rapid and sustained activity against a range of wound pathogens, reducing planktonic and established biofilm cultures, and preventing biofilm formation.
Taking the trauma out of wound care: the importance of undisturbed healing.
TLDR
This review aims to consider the ways traditional, as well as modern, wound dressings may disturb wounds, summarising the potential areas of wound disturbance and suggesting how best to address this aspect of the use of wound dressing to treat acute as wellAs chronic wounds.
