Abstract

PURPOSE
The purpose
of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness and validity of the wound dressing using heterogenic type I collagen dressing (Collaheal(R)).
METHODS
From January 2010 to April 2010, 46 burn patients with deep second degree or third degree burn wound were treated with Collaheal(R). And we followed up the patients to assess the treatment result with Vancouver scar scale after 6 months.
RESULTS
Of the 46 patients, 42 patients had deep second degree burn only and 4 patients had deep second degree burn with third degree burn. It took 18.5 days to re-epithelialize for patients with deep second degree burn and 40.5 days for third degree burn wound. After 6 months, follow-up was performed to assess the wound result. We can observe that 24 patients had mild scar and 5 patients had moderate scar and 2 patients had severe scar. The severity of scar increased as the re-epithelialization period increased.
CONCLUSION
It took 18.5 days to re-epithelialize the deep second degree burn wound with collagen dressing. And the long term result was good. Type I collagen dressing can be used for treatment option for the patients with deep second degree burn wound and the patients with small third degree burn wound who cannot be operated.
