Fibrin Sealant in Skin Grafting: Indications, Methods, and Pitfalls

Conference paper


If a lesion of the skin affects all dermal layers, healing processes start, which — without surgical intervention — lead to wound closure with scar formation. To prevent infection during a lengthy period of healing or to facilitate closure in the case of more extensive defects we perform surgical wound closure. The functional and cosmetic results depend on the time of wound closure and on the chosen surgical technique.
