We present a case study of how targeted “Nexobrid” Rapid Enzymatic Debridement is currently being used on mixed depth hand burns in BG Klinik Ludwigshafen, Germany. We examine the support in the literature for scar remodelling with needling. Finally we compare the use of Suprathel vs Biobane in both the adult and paediatric burn population in Europe versus Australia.

Dr Nash is a Plastic Surgery trainee with a keen interest in Adult and Paediatric Burn Surgery. For three weeks he was fortunate to have the opportunity to observe burn management at the Marien Hospital Stuttgart, University Medical Centre Mannheim and for the most part BG Klinik Ludwigshafen.
