Abstract

Objective: To report on the clinical benefits of platelet gel application in a non-regenerating skin wound. Clinical Presentation and Intervention: An 84-year-old man presented with a severe wound with a regular circumference in the frontal region which resulted in a complete loss of epidermis and dermis. The skin lesion, induced by cryosurgery used to remove a basal-cell carcinoma, was previously treated with a dermal substitute application (Integra®). After the failure of the skin graft, the patient was a treated using a platelet gel therapeutic protocol which achieved the complete healing of the injured area. Conclusion: This case showed the clinical efficacy of using platelet gel in this elderly patient in whom the dermal substitute graft was ineffective.
