Gillenwater, 2017

In the management of small, non-circumferential extremity burns requiring excision and sheet grafting, the soft silicone silver contact layer appeared to reduce the risk of infection, and the number of staples required to secure the graft as well as the amount of friction applied to the wound bed. The extended wear time promoted undisturbed healing, increase patient comfort and reduce staff time for multiple dressing changes.
