The management of burn injuries is complex and these wound typically require aggressive debridement. Epidermal burns typically only require supportive therapy, but deeper burns often require more attention. Most deep partial thickness burns are best managed by excising the burnt tissue and grafting skin. Full-thickness burns >1cm2 will almost always require require excision and grafting[1].
