Debrisan And Saline Dressing


R. K. Gang.

Chir Plastica (1981) 6: 65-68.


Forty-eight patients with infected, discharging burn wounds were treated on an alternate basis with topical Debrisan (Pharmacia AB Sweden) and saline dressing. Each series of 24 cases was relatively similar in terms of age and sex distribution, etiology of burn, extent and depth of burn. Results of our comparative study shows that Debrisan has remarkable effect in reducing inflammatory reaction within short time in comparison to saline dressing. It has proved to shorten the healing in infected superficial burns but had no effect on the separation of eschar.
