BAP Medical was present with a big booth to present our product lines for the prevention and aftercare of burns and connect with burn professionals from all over Europe involved in all branches of burn care.

Preventive measures for hypertrophic scars

Up to 90% of scars after a burn become hypertrophic! In the international Scar Management Guidelines (International Consensus) is stated that after wound closure there are 2 preventive measures you should start with: Hydration & Silicone Therapy.

  • ALHYDRAN assures optimal hydration of the epidermis and prevents trans epidermal water loss. The effectiveness of ALHYDRAN has been scientifically proven.
  • SCARBAN and BAPSCARCARE Silicone Sheets and Gels are intended for the prevention of scars as well as the treatment of young and old hypertrophic and keloid scars.

Reception with Burns Association and burn professionals

In cooperation with the Dutch Burns Association we also hosted a reception for more than 125 burn professionals from The Netherlands and Belgium. It was a great party!

We believe the EBA 2019 was a huge success and we are already looking forward visiting the 2021 edition in Italy.
