A prospective, non-comparative study design was used to describe our experience with a bromelain-derived debriding agent, Debridase, in 130 patients with 332 deep second degree and third degree burns treated between 1984 and 1999. Debridase was applied after saturating the burns with a moist dressing for 2‐24 h. Debridase was applied for a period of 4 h under an occlusive dressing. Mean patient age was 18.6 19.3, 42 (32.3%) were female, and 63 (48.5%) were children under age 18. Most burns were small. Debridase was applied once in 241 (72.6%)
