Instantaneous Specific Burn Debridement With an Enzymatic Debriding Agent: A New Resource for the Treatment of Burns.Plast Surg Nurs 2019 Jan/Mar; 39(1):18-21PS
Nexobrid is a new resource for debridement that has emerged in recent years and is gaining relevance in the treatment of all kinds of thermal injuries. This product is an ointment (formed with a mixture of pineapple-derived enzymes enriched with bromelain) that is directly applied over the burn. With a single application, it performs a burned tissue-specific debridement in less than 4 hr, leaving a vital and completely debrided wound bed. In this article, we describe our experience with this product, and through a representative case, we explain the management of these patients in our Burns unit in consonance with national and international consensus.
