PMID:  2655829     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
In a randomized controlled clinical trial (RCCT) the healing rate, infection and late cosmetic/functional results were investigated in 48 children admitted to hospital with scalds. They were treated with either exposure treatment (EP) or lyophilized allograft (LA). Healing rate was improved with LA treatment. The infection tendency was identical within the two groups. Late cosmetic/functional results were superior, with LA treatment compared to exposure treatment but only in the subgroup of superficial dermal scalds.
