Brief Summary:
This is a multi-center, pivotal study to assess the safety and effectiveness of a new method of treating severe burns using NovoSorb Biodegradable Temporizing Matrix (BTM).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Burns Device: NovoSorb BTM Procedure: Standard of Care Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
This is a multi-center, pivotal study to assess the safety and effectiveness of a new method of treating severe burns using NovoSorb Biodegradable Temporizing Matrix (BTM). A comparison will be made between burn wounds treated with BTM and the institution's standard of care (SOC).

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: NovoSorb BTM
Application of NovoSorb BTM to study lesions
Device: NovoSorb BTM
NovoSorb BTM comprises a completely synthetic, sterile, integrating dermal component (porous biodegradable polyurethane foam) and a temporary epidermal barrier component (a nonbiodegradable polyurethane sealing membrane). These layers are adhered with a biodegradable polyurethane bonding layer. BTM will be implanted and fixed into position to close a debrided burn wound. After a period of integration, the sealing membrane is removed and a split skin graft is applied.

Active Comparator: Standard of Care
Application of the institution's standard to care to study lesions.
Procedure: Standard of Care
Burn wounds will be treated using the institution's standard of care, e.g. primary skin grafting, cadaveric allograft followed by skin grafting.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of study lesions in both groups with complete wound closure after skin grafting [ Time Frame: 4 weeks after skin grafting ]
    Assessment of clinical outcome by wound closure
