The evidence for application of silver‐containing dressings and topicals in the treatment of partial‐thickness burns in pediatric patients is largely based on clinical trials involving adult patients despite the important differences between the skin of children and adults. A systematic review and meta‐analysis was performed of all randomized controlled trials comparing nonsilver treatment with silver‐containing dressings and silver topical agents in children with partial‐thickness burns in the… 
Delayed Healing Associated with Silver Sulfadiazine Use for Partial Thickness Scald Burns in Children
TLDR
The groups were comparable in terms of presenting burn characteristics and hospital course with the exception of the BD group being associated with greater extent of injury, and the authors have amended their practice and presently use BD or TA dressings to improve healing.
Flaminal® versus Flamazine® in the treatment of partial thickness burns: A randomized controlled trial on clinical effectiveness and scar quality (FLAM study)
TLDR
Time to wound healing did not differ, but the use of Flaminal® Forte seemed favorable because less dressing changes are needed which lowers the burden of wound care.
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.
Silver Sulfadiazine or Biobrane Dressings: Which is the Best Treatment for Partial Thickness Burns in Pediatrics?
TLDR
Evidence showed that there was limited high-quality evidence to confirm the effectiveness of Biobrane compared with SSD in the pediatric population with partial thickness burns in regard to fewer dressing changes, improved healing time, and reduced wound infections.
Pediatric Burn Treatment Using Tilapia Skin as a Xenograft for Superficial-Partial Thickness Wounds: a Pilot Study.
TLDR
Tilapia skin showed good adherence to the wound bed, reducing the number of dressing changes required, the amount of anesthetics used, and providing benefits for the patients and also for healthcare professionals, by reducing the overall work-load.
Usability and effectiveness of Suprathel® in partial thickness burns in children
TLDR
Suprathel® provides potential advantages regarding pain and scar formation, but extensive wound debridement is needed to achieve adequate adherence.

Long‐term quality of life and cost‐effectiveness of treatment of partial thickness burns: A randomized controlled trial comparing enzyme alginogel vs silver sulfadiazine (FLAM study)
TLDR
It is found that enzyme alginogel is unlikely to be cost‐effective compared with SSD in the treatment of partial thickness burns and there were no significant differences in quality of life between both treatment groups.

Biobrane versus 1% Silver Sulfadiazine in Second‐Degree Pediatric Burns
TLDR
The treatment of partial‐thickness burns with Biobrane is superior to topical therapy with 1 % silver sulfadiazine and pain, pain medication requirements, wound healing time, and length of hospital stay are significantly reduced.
A silicone-coated nylon dressing reduces healing time in burned paediatric patients in comparison with standard sulfadiazine treatment: a prospective randomized trial.
New Topical Agents for Treatment of Partial-thickness Burns in Children: A Review of Published Outcome Studies.
TLDR
Skin substitutes and contemporary dressings have been reported as superior to silver sulfadiazine (SSD) in achieving faster healing times and decreased pain in pediatric patients, and prospective trials with standardized outcome measures are needed to better define the role of these agents.
Optimal treatment of partial thickness burns in children: a systematic review.
Prospective, randomized study of the efficacy of Mepitel on children with partial-thickness scalds.
TLDR
Wounds of children treated with Mepitel healed significantly faster than did controls', exhibited less eschar formation, and experienced less pain at dressing change, and had significantly lower mean daily hospital charges.
A systematic review of silver-containing dressings and topical silver agents (used with dressings) for burn wounds.
Nanocrystalline Silver: A Systematic Review of Randomized Trials Conducted on Burned Patients and an Evidence-Based Assessment of Potential Advantages Over Older Silver Formulations
TLDR
Nanocrystalline silver is a relatively new product with a significant stronger antimicrobial activity compared with older formulations and its long lasting properties reduce dressing change frequency and are probably responsible for the decreased pain and the minor costs experienced.
Biobrane improves wound healing in burned children without increased risk of infection.
TLDR
The application of Biobrane within 48 h of superficial burns provides for shorter hospitalizations and faster healing times in children of all ages without increased risk of infection.
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.
