Background. Assessment of the state of healed burn wounds after their treatment is an urgent problem at the present time. Aim of the research. To assess the condition of post-burn wounds in 1 and 6 months after the completion of treatment of II-III degree burns (according to ICD-10) in children using bioplastic collagenous material "Collost" in various forms and traditional local conservative therapy using hydrocolloid dressings. Material and methods. The condition of the healed wound was assessed at discharge, as well as after 1 and 6 months in 48 patients using modified Vancouver Scar Scale (management of burn wounds: main group - bioplastic material and hydrocolloid dressings; control group - hydrocolloid dressings). Results. The use of native collagen in the complex treatment of thermal trauma helps to reduce the relative and absolute risk after 1 and 6 months as well as to lower adverse trends from the post-burn wound. Conclusions. The obtained results suggest further investigation of the mechanism of influence of type I collagenbased drugs on the dynamics of the wound process in thermal burns, as well as the study of its effect on individual wound characteristics described by the Vancouver scar scale.
