Less scarring by a new technique, burns

There is a new way of skin transplant so someone less scarring of burns.

This writes RTL News. With the new technique remains the transplanted skin is better irrigated. Thus there is no repeated operations are needed, are the scars better and there is more freedom of movement.

Previously, skin grafts, the blood flow of the skin cut off. This shrinks the skin, leaving ugly scars formation. It experiences a patient has no freedom of movement because the skin pulls.

“We are making smarter use of the blood circulation of the skin,” explains researcher Carlijn Stekelenburg at RTL News. “Thus, we ensure that there is no tight scars anymore.”

With the new transplantatietechniek have not patients more time and time again to be operated. It is, therefore, a godsend for patients who for the first time, a skin graft and for people who already have more are operated.
