Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Randomized, Prospective, Pilot Study Evaluating a Temporary Skin Substitute (AWBAT-D) Versus the Standard of Care in the Postoperative Treatment of Split-thickness Skin Graft Donor Sites

Further study details as provided by Georgetown University:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Time for donor site to heal with AWBAT-D [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    As compared to current standard of care, Tegaderm.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Pain at donor site [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Pain at donor site is less than that of standard of care treatment, Tegaderm.

Detailed Description:

The study is designed as a randomized-controlled trial to examine split thickness skin graft donor wound site healing using AWBAT-D compared to current standard of care: Tegaderm. This will involve randomizing subjects to treatment with the AWBAT-D dressing or Tegaderm and monitoring outcomes. The AWBAT-D device has collagen and we hypothesize that the wounds treated with it will heal faster and with a decreased pain level. The purpose of this study is to evaluate if there are differences in outcomes between AWBAT-D and Tegaderm in healing split thickness skin graft donor sites.
