Annals of Plastic Surgery: May 2012 - Volume 68 - Issue 5 - p 451-456 doi: 10.1097/SAP.0b013e31824189ed Buy Metrics Abstract Seven patients underwent 2-stage skin grafting with bovine fetal collagen (BFC) as an initial wound cover. Split-thickness skin grafts were successfully placed on the wounds after completion of interval management. BFC proved to be a resilient acellular dermal matrix that could proceed to assimilation and skin grafting under a variety of wound conditions. BFC may prove to be a valuable material, as the role of acellular dermal matrices in skin grafting becomes better defined. Copyright © 2012 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
