An Investigation to Evaluate a New Donor Site Dressing in Surgical Burn Patients
The investigator will identify the test donor site and test location will be considered on the upper anterior thighs as being the most suitable if available. Circumferential donors will be considered acceptable as well.
Treatment will be initiated in the operation room following debridement and split thickness grafting of wounds. Donors will be harvested at 0.010 - 0.012 in. thickness. Treatment and dressing of test donor site will include hemostasis post harvesting with epinephrine-soaked lap sponges. Once adequate hemostasis is achieved, a Mepilex Transfer Ag dressing will be applied directly to study site. Secondary dressing will include covering with ace wrap.
Healing should be asses after 10-14 days.

|Official Title:||A Prospective, Open, Non-controlled Clinical Investigation to Evaluate the Adequacy of a New Donor Site Dressing in Surgical Burn Patients.|
- Percentage of Participants Who Had > 95 % Epithelialization at Day 10 [ Time Frame: 10 days ]
- Pain at Dressing Changes [ Time Frame: 28 days ]
The Medain and Full Range values are presented for all pain scores collected over multiple dressing changes, per participant, over the course of 28 Days.
Adult ( 13 years and older) patient informed about his/her pain from No pain (0) to Most intense pain (100) imaginable, by using the Visual Analogue Scale ( VAS),
Children were using the WONG baker faces, they could chose between, no hurt, hurts Little bit, hurts Little more, hurts even more hurts whole lot hurts worst.
