Severe burns in particular often require transplantation. The researchers at the Zurich Children's Hospital have come up with an innovation that saves the lives of children and young people. The professionals produce replacement skin from the patient's own cells in the laboratory. This artificially grown skin is then transplanted onto the wound by surgeons. Clinical studies show that the transplanted replacement skin fits into the body with little or no scarring and then even grows with it. This reduces future follow-up treatments, especially for children who are still developing.
