  Purpose

The primary objective is to compare the incremental costs (direct and indirect) and benefits (healing outcomes, quality of life) of using foam silver dressing (Mepilex® Ag) to a Silver sulfadiazine 1% cream (Silvadene®) from the perspective of the health care provider.

The secondary objectives are to investigate the safety, the tolerance and the performance on burn status including pain.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Compare the Costs of Using the Interventions (Direct and Indirect) [ Time Frame: August 2008-August 2009 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The incremental cost-effectiveness ratio was used to estimate the cost per unit of effectiveness with the use of one treatment (Mepilex AG dressing) in place of another (silver sulfadiazine).

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Mepilex Device: Mepilex
Mepilex Ag - dressing changes every 5-7 days, more frequently if needed

  • Patients with necrotising leucocytic vasculitis or pyoderma gangrenosa.
  • Diagnosed underlying disease(s) (e.g. HIV/AIDS, cancer and severe anaemia) judged by the investigator to be a potential interference in the treatment.
