Reconstructive Surgery & Anaplastology
TLDR
Vaginal reconstruction with tilapia skin seems to be an excellent option for patients with radiation-induced vaginal stenosis due to its wide availability, easy application and high effectiveness.
Neovaginoplasty with tilapia fish skin: a series of eleven cases
TLDR
Histological and immunohistochemical analysis demonstrated the formation of a stratified squamous epithelium with strong marking for cytokeratins, FGF and EGFR, similar to healthy adult vaginal tissue, which proves to be an inexpensive therapeutic possibility for the health system with excellent advantages for patients.
Lyophilised tilapia skin as a xenograft for superficial partial thickness burns: a novel preparation and storage technique.
TLDR
The good adherence of tilapia skin to the wound bed, a 10-day period for complete re-epithelialisation of the wounds and the absence of side effects suggested that the lyophilised version of tilAPia skin is effective for burn treatment.
A Randomized Comparison Study of Lyophilized Nile Tilapia Skin and Silver-Impregnated Sodium Carboxymethylcellulose for the Treatment of Superficial Partial-Thickness Burns.
TLDR
Lyophilized Nile tilapia skin shares the same characteristics of an ''ideal'' wound dressing demonstrated by glycerolized Nile Tilapiaskin in previous studies and demonstrated non-inferiority for burn management when compared to silver-impregnated sodium carboxymethylcellulose dressing.
Innovative Burn Treatment Using Tilapia Skin as a Xenograft: A Phase II Randomized Controlled Trial.
TLDR
It was found that in participants treated with tilapia skin, complete reepithelialization occurred in significantly fewer days; reported pain intensity was lower; and the necessity of dressing changes was significantly reduced in comparison with volunteers treated with silver sulfadiazine.
Nile Tilapia Fish Skin, Scales, and Spine as Naturally Derived Biomaterials for Tissue Regeneration
TLDR
This study aims to review the literature on the use of Nile tilapia-derived extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins as naturally derived scaffold material for tissue regeneration with a view to finding a satisfactory source of collagen for its quality and cost benefit.
Comparison of Skin Substitutes for Acute and Chronic Wound Management.
TLDR
This article provides a review of the relevant literature related to the major categories of skin substitutes available and describes the current state of the art in these categories.

Tilapia Fish Skin: a new biological graft in gynecology
TLDR
Creating a satisfactory neovagine when sexual activity is desired is primarily the goal of treatment, and Progressive dilatation is the first choice for creation of a neovagina, but this requires highly motivated patients and has a considerable failure rate.
Study of tensiometric properties, microbiological and collagen content in nile tilapia skin submitted to different sterilization methods
TLDR
It is concluded that chemical and radiation are efficient methods to sterilize Nile Tilapia skin without altering its microscopic or tensiometric characteristics.

TLDR
Analysis of the oral cavity, and skin tissue microbiota on the Nile tilapia, a fish species raised commercially in Brazil, concludes that the CFU values found in this study reflect a normal, non-infectious colonization/microbiota.
