The application of Glyaderm for skin restoration intends to provide a more stable wound closure with enhanced pliability and function of the skin and a more favourable scar. The dermal substitute would be affordable for widespread application in full thickness skin defects and burns.
Patients with burn wounds or large full thickness wounds will be evaluated before enrollment. All burn wounds that are not clearly full thickness on clinical assessment will be treated during the first 48 hours with a hydrocolloid paste and covered with a paraffin gauze dressing. This hydrocolloid paste combined with paraffin gauze will ensure maintenance of a moist wound environment for the first 48 hours prior to assessment by LDI and randomization. This is the standard treatment for all burns admitted to the Ghent Burn Centre.
Wounds will be photographed on a daily basis. In order to obtain an optimal preparation for LDI, the burn wounds will be meticulously debrided during dressing changes. LDI is most reliable between 48-72 hours. Patients whose burn wounds meet the inclusion criteria, i.e. full thickness burns with LDI values < 200 will be randomized to receive either GLYADERM and split skin graft versus split skin graft alone.

In clinical practice, split-thickness skin graft (STSG) transplantation remains the gold standard for covering large skin defects. Currently, there is no consensus on the optimal thickness of skin gra...
Aloe vera has been used to treat wounds since ancient times. However, the efficacy of Aloe vera for burns and split-thickness skin graft (STSG) donor sites are inconclusive.
Managing cutaneous substance loss after debridement is challenging, especially if it is secondary to necrotizing soft tissue infection, such as necrotizing fasciitis and Fournier gangrene. After skin ...
The traditional method of skin graft fixation is with tie-over bollus dressing. The use of splints in the extremities for skin graft fixation is a common practice. However, these splints are heavy and...

The immune responses of a host to a graft. A specific response is GRAFT REJECTION.
An immunological attack mounted by a graft against the host because of tissue incompatibility when immunologically competent cells are transplanted to an immunologically incompetent host; the resulting clinical picture is that of GRAFT VS HOST DISEASE.
Complete severing of the CORPUS CALLOSUM. In humans it is usually performed to treat medically intractable, multifocal EPILEPSY. EXPERIMENTAL ANIMAL MODELS of split brain preparations are used in research.
The survival of a graft in a host, the factors responsible for the survival and the changes occurring within the graft during growth in the host.
The induction of prolonged survival and growth of allografts of either tumors or normal tissues which would ordinarily be rejected. It may be induced passively by introducing graft-specific antibodies from previously immunized donors, which bind to the graft's surface antigens, masking them from recognition by T-cells; or actively by prior immunization of the recipient with graft antigens which evoke specific antibodies and form antigen-antibody complexes which bind to the antigen receptor sites of the T-cells and block their cytotoxic activity.
