Brief Summary:

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.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Donor Site Complication Device: Mepilex Transfer Ag Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
A prospective, open, non-controlled clinical investigation to evaluate the adequacy of donor site healing when using a new donor site dressing, Mepilex Transfer Ag approximately 20 subjects from 2 centres in the US, presenting with the need for surgical intervention and grafting for burn injury will be enrolled. Eligible subjects will have a selected donor site designated as a "study site".

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Mepilex Transfer Ag
Mepilex Transfer Ag is a soft silicone wound contact layer that absorbs and transfers exudate, maintains a moist wound healing environment and has antimicrobial properties.
Device: Mepilex Transfer Ag
Silver dressing

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of Participants Who Had > 95 % Epithelialization at Day 10 [ Time Frame: 10 days ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. 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.
