OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE Amniotic membrane can be used as autologous reconstruction graft material when aseptically obtained. We introduce here a novel repair technique using autologous amnion graft, and report a case presentation of myelomeningocele successfully treated with this graft material. TECHNIQUE Amniotic membrane, which was composed of amnion and chorion, was aseptically harvested at cesarean section. Removing chorionic tissue, amnion containing monolayer of amniotic epithelial… CONTINUE READING
