We report the result which is performed treatment using cultured allogenic keratinocyte (Kaloderm(R)) for 2nd degree burn patients who did not want to operation.
METHODS
From February 2010 to April 2011, we treated 12 patients who suffered from 2nd degree burn using cultured allogenic keratinocyte (Kaloderm(R)). We followed up the degree of epithelization and scar formation. Average follow-up time was 7.8 months (2~16 months).
RESULTS
Almost wound was healed without any complication. Epithelization of wound look an average 12.9 days after Kaloderm(R) application. We conducted split-thickness skin graft in 2 patients additionally. There were no severe hypertrophic scar, contraction and color mismatch.
