We present the use of biological dressing (amnios) as an alternative for skin replacement due to burn accidents. With the use of serologic tests, itis guaranteed to be free of the possibility of transmitting infectious diseases.The amnios is sterilized with 60Co gamma radiation. In this way, amnios is free of bacteria and fungi. In addition, with the use of serologic tests atthe moment of the childbirth and 6 months later, we can be sure that it won't transmit the syphilis, AIDS, hepatitis b and c viruses. This treatmentwas applied to 12 children with burns of 1° and 2° degree (7 girls and 5 boys) that required hospitalization. The application is very simple. It doesnot require of anesthesic procedure, or the use of surgical room. The pain decreased notoriously, and the procedure can be repeated as frequently as necessary. Once the dressing is applied, it does not require any type of surgical cleaning. The scaring process begins at the borders and under the dressing, where there is a new tissue. It decreases: 1) the possibility of infection, and therefore reduces the consumption of antibiotic; 2) theuse of analgesics; 3) the time of scaring and 4) the number of days of hospitalization.
