Experimental: Opticell Ag
Opticell Ag covered with a transparent occlusive dressing (Tegaderm) with evenly distributed perforations which permit a controlled leakage into a layer of cotton gauze pads placed directly over the Opticell Ag and occlusive dressing combination.
Device: Opticell Ag
Opticell Ag+ applied to STSG donor site
- Pain [ Time Frame: Assessed up to 14 days of use ]Pain reported by Subject using a visual analog scale (VAS). This scale measures an unidimensional measure of pain intensity by means of a continuous scale comprised of a horizontal line, 10 centimeters (100 mm) in length. The left side of the scale signifies no pain (score of 0), and the right side the other extreme, worst pain imaginable (score of 10). Patients are asked to place a line perpendicular to the VAS scale at the point that represents their pain intensity.
- Wound Healing Rate (Re-epithelialization) [ Time Frame: Assessed up to 1 month postoperatively. ]The extent of re-epithelialization was evaluated by the surgeon and a blinded expert using photographs taken on days 10-14 and at 1 month postoperatively.
- Wound Healing Quality [ Time Frame: Assessed up to 1 month of use ]Assessed using the Vancouver scar scale (VSS) 1-month post-operatively. The VSS is a widely used scale in clinical practice to document change in scar appearance. The scale scores four parameters: pigmentation, vascularity, pliability, and height for a total of 13 points. Normal appearance in each of the parameters garners a score of 0 and scores get higher (2-3) as an increase in parameters is observed. The lower the score, the better the outcome.
