Experimental restoration of skin defects with Surgicel soaked in blood

Gy Bornemisza, I. Miko

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Skin defects of full thickness were produced in 15 rabbits. The wounds were covered with Surgicel soaked in the animal's own blood and fixed at the edges with Histoacryl N Blau adhesive. A gradual epithelization took place under the covering layer. The method is suggested as an emergency measure in case of serious burns or other extensive skin injuries.
