Resumen

ROA GUTIERREZ, Ricardo E.  y  PINEROS BARRAGAN, José Luis. Temporary coverage in burns. Cir. plást. iberolatinoam. [online]. 2020, vol.46, suppl.1, pp.17-22.  Epub 22-Jun-2020. ISSN 1989-2055.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4321/s0376-78922020000200006.

Sometimes excised burn wounds cannot be covered immediately with autologous skin grafts, due to local wound conditions, unavailability of donor areas, or because the procedure itself may be risky for patient survival. In these circumstances a temporary coverage is desirable to maintain wound viability, reduce infections, metabolic stress and pain.

Allografts have always been considered the best temporary coverage, but availability and cost are of concern. Xenografts can provide temporary coverage, even though its quality is clearly inferior to allograft

Although there is a constant evolution in the development of skin substitutes, no single product can be considered as the gold standard

This article reviews currently available products and clinical situations in which they can be used.
