underwent 22 applications of CAK supplied by a private laboratory. The keratinocyte I grafts were applied to a mean of 15.9% of the body surface area (range, 4%-59%) at an average cost per patient of $43,705 (range, $9,800 to $161,000). The mean body 0) surface area of definitive wound coverage by these grafts was 4.7% (range, 0%18.6%). The mean length of hospitalization was 132 days (range, 50-275 days). The observed mortality was 12.5% (two patients). Our experience with this wound care approach has been assessed with respect to the extent of burn, the level of wound excision, and the site of CAK application.
