One-step grafting procedure using artificial dermis and split-thickness skin in burn patients

One-step grafting procedure using artificial dermis and split-thickness skin in burn patients The study aimed to achieve a one-step grafting procedure using artificial dermis and split-thickness skin. We performed simultaneous grafting of artificial dermis and skin in two severely burned patients. Artificial dermis was treated with fresh autogenous platelet-derived wound-healing factors (PDWHF), cryopreserved allogeneic cultured endothelial cells, and fibroblasts. Dermal microvascular endothelial cells and fibroblasts were obtained from a single human donor’s skin. The cultured cells were cryopreserved until use in grafting. The PDWHF was prepared from autogenous blood from each patient prior to the surgery. In two patients, the artificial dermis treated with this method was grafted to a full-thickness burn wound. Immediately after artificial dermis grafting, meshed split-thickness skin was grafted. In each case, the skin graft took well, and the skin texture was acceptable. Histological examination revealed that bovine collagen tissue remained in the dermis after surgery, indicating the success of the simultaneous grafting of the artificial dermis and the skin. The present study indicates that one-step grafting of artificial dermis and split-skin is possible when the artificial dermis is treated with PDWHF and cultured endothelial cells and fibroblasts. Level of Evidence: Level V, therapeutic study. European Journal of Plastic Surgery Springer Journals
