Use of Three Layered Regenerative Scaffold Dressing in the Wound Bed Preparation of Second Degree Scald Burns

Ravi Kumar Chittoria, Viswak M, Amrutha J.S J S


Burn injuries are prevalent among children, with thermal, scald, and electrical burns being the primary causes. Among these, scald injuries are particularly common in children under the age of five, constituting more than 65% of reported cases. In contemporary settings, diverse scaffolds are employed to enhance the healing process and minimize scar formation. Collagen serves as a crucial scaffold, facilitating tissue regeneration and promoting the formation of new blood vessels. Furthermore, alternative scaffolds such as the amniotic membrane exhibit unique anti-inflammatory and bacteriostatic properties, contributing to proper epithelization and reducing scarring. Silicone gel sheets, with their hydrophobic characteristics, play a role in minimizing scarring and providing analgesia. This study focuses on a novel approach employing a three-layered scaffold dressing for a second-degree scald burn in a pediatric patient. The multi-layered scaffold is designed to optimize the healing process and mitigate scarring. By incorporating materials like collagen, amniotic membrane, and silicone gel sheets, the dressing aims to provide a comprehensive solution that addresses the specific challenges posed by pediatric burn injuries. The utilization of such advanced scaffolds reflects ongoing efforts to improve therapeutic outcomes and enhance the overall quality of care for pediatric burn patients, emphasizing the importance of a multidimensional approach in managing these common injuries.
