Case Studies - Section Summary

In this section, you have learned:

  • INTEGRA Template can be used in a variety of reconstructive applications
  • In the first surgical procedure the wound is excised to viable tissue and INTEGRA Template is applied. Over the next 2-3 weeks, typically 14-28 days, the dermal layer is regenerated while simultaneously degrading the collagen-GAG matrix. The biodegradable template induces organized regeneration of normal dermal tissue ("Neodermis") by the body. In the second surgical procedure following dermal regeneration, the silicone layer is removed and a thin epidermal autograft 0.004-0.006 inches (0.1016 - 0.1524 millimeters) is applied. As shown, engraftment and confluence of the epidermal graft complete the process in about 30 days from the first procedure.
