  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to determine if using a DERMAL LAYER under skin grafts:

  1. will reduce scar formation of skin grafts
  2. will reduce burn wound contractures
  3. will improve functional outcome of joints requiring grafts
  4. will reduce healing times and potential complications of donor sites

Compare scarring outcome of Dermal products
