Ability of microautotransplants to re-epithelialize deep and extensive skin injuries.

Abstract

Experiments with rats of different ages have established the potential of microautotransplants (MATR) of skin (0.5-3.0 mm2 in size) to produce neoepidermis on fresh and granulating wounds. The MATR induced a 40-fold increased rate of closing of the wound surface. Contraction of the re-epithelialized wounds followed the same trend found for an open wound… (More)
