Caption: The skin substitutes were engineered using split-thickness
skin biopsies from 16 children with full-thickness burns, said Steven Boyce, Ph.D.
A maxillectomy with preservation of the floor of the orbit and repair with a split-thickness
graft was performed.
- A bilayered skin substitute was unanimously recommended as approvable with conditions for the treatment of split-thickness
graft donor sites in burn patients by a Food and Drug Administration expert panel.
In the study described in this publication, Adipose Derived Regenerative Cells, the active component of Cytori Cell Therapy, were delivered by intravenous injection in a porcine model of mixed full-and partial thickness burn injury covering approximately 20% of total body surface area in which full thickness burns were treated with a meshed autologous split-thickness
The large surgical defect of the donor site required a split-thickness
After repeated debridement and dressings the bed was finally healthy (FIGURE-1), and an unexpanded, meshed, split-thickness
skin graft was performed (FIGURE-2), by placing the graft junction on the ventral surface of the penis.
A medium-sized split-thickness
skin graft (16/1,000 inch thick) was applied to the TPF and secured to the edges of the ear skin (figure 1, B).
DISCUSSION: A eutectic mixture of local anesthetics (EMLA) contains 2.5% lidocaine and 2.5% prilocaine in an oil and water emulsion and has been found to give effective, safe analgesia on normal and diseased skin, making it useful for numerous medical and surgical procedures, such as anesthesia for superficial surgery, split-thickness
skin grafts, venipuncture, argon laser treatment, epilation, and debridement of infected ulcers.
The defect was reconstructed with a modification of the Palva flap and lined with a split-thickness
The resulting surgical defect was closed with a split-thickness
skin graft superiorly and a cervicofacial rotational flap inferiorly.
Reconstruction had been performed with split-thickness
The maxillary defect was filled with a split-thickness
skin graft obtained from the right thigh.
