Abstract

This is an observational case series of 15 patients with full-thickness traumatic wound defects treated with a dermal substitute. There were 8 male and 7 female patients with a mean age of 36.6 years. Eight patients had trauma to the lower limbs and 7 were of the upper limbs, with the average lesion size 104.4 cm2 (range 6-490 cm2). The time to complete healing had a mean average time of 26.8 days (range 16-60 days). All patients went on to successful repair with 6 patients requiring a second application of the substitute and 5 patients needing split thickness skin grafts. Infection was recorded in one patient.
