Case Studies - Section Summary

In this section, you have learned:

  • INTEGRA™ Bilayer Matrix Wound Dressing can be used in a variety of chronic and traumatic applications
  • The wound is surgically debrided or excised to viable tissue and INTEGRA™ Bilayer Matrix Wound Dressing is applied. Over the next 2-4 weeks, the matrix is remodeled as the patient's cells rebuild the damaged site while simultaneously degrading the collagen-GAG matrix. After the remodeled wound has developed, the silicone layer is removed and complete wound closure occurs as epidermal cells migrate from the wound edges. For larger wounds, a thin epidermal autograft 0.004-0.006 inches (0.1016 - 0.1524 millimeters) may be applied. As shown, wound closure is typically complete in about 30 days.
