Evaluation of ACell Hydrated Wound Dressing for Autogenous Skin Donor Sites

2014-07-23 21:35:47 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to see if treating a donor site wound with the ACell dressing is as good as or better than the dressings we currently treat harvested donor sites with. This will be tested on consenting burn patients who require excision and grafting surgery for their burn wounds.

Hypothesis: The mean healing time for wounds treated with the ACell dressing will be less than the mean healing time for wounds treated with the Standard of Care dressing.

Description

This is a single-center, prospective, randomized, and controlled study to evaluate the effectiveness of the ACell Dressing for use as a dressing for autogenous skin donor sites compared to our current standard donor site dressing, which is currently Xeroform.
