Abstract :

Fibroblasts and keratinocytes represent great and popular therapeutic modalities used in medicine, including dermatology. In this respect, keratinocytes are very important in the treatment of skin defects, especially in extensive burns. There are autologous and allogeneic skin grafts. The development is heading towards the utilization of biosynthetic and combined skin grafts that resemble the structure of normal skin???cultivated allogenic and autologous keratinocytes, allogenic or autologous composites, acellular matrices, collagen/hyaluronic acid-based matrices, and matrices combining various types of cells (keratinocytes, dermal fibroblasts, stem cells). In a successful clinical practice, it is inevitable to establish and maintain great cooperation between the physician and an accredited tissue bank or a specialized laboratory. We shall present the usage of fibroblasts in the therapy of a huge pressure ulcer, with great regenerative and rejuvenating effects. The suspension of fibroblasts in saline solution was administered in form of intradermal injections. The number of injections was determined by the nature and size of the problem area on the skin. The anti-aging treatment included 3 sessions. The procedure was minimally invasive, no allergic reactions were observed. Great effects were documented in the usage of dermal and epidermal grafts in the therapy of acute and chronic wounds.
