Abstract


A 72-year-old male patient presented with 1% total body surface area superficial partial thickness burns, with small areas of deep partial and full thickness burns. Granulox, a commercial porcine-derived haemoglobin-containing spray, was used as an adjunct in healing the wounds, and improved local healing of the wound, decreased the length of stay in hospital and provided a favourable outcome.
