Skin surgery for cutaneous injuries and defects
Skin is our body’s largest organ. Worldwide, millions of people suffer from large, deep skin defects requiring surgical interventions to restore skin function. Skin defects can be acute (burns and trauma) or elective (scar revisions, giant nevi or tumor resections, plastic surgery, etc.).
Burns are a global public health problem and major cause of death and disability globally, and number of plastic surgeries and skin cancers is growing globally.
The current standard of care in burn, plastic and reconstructive surgery – autografting – is often not available in sufficient quantities due to donor site shortage and yields skin grafts that are too thin and too often result in permanent painful, debilitating, disfiguring scars that frequently require follow up corrective surgeries, psychosocial rehabilitation and intense home care.
