IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION (United States)
INDICATIONS FOR USE: The RECELL® Autologous Cell Harvesting Device is indicated for the treatment of acute thermal burn wounds. The RECELL® device is used by an appropriately-licensed healthcare professional at the patient’s point of care to prepare autologous RES® Regenerative Epidermal Suspension for direct application to acute partial-thickness thermal burn wounds in patients 18 years of age and older or application in combination with meshed autografting for acute full-thickness thermal burn wounds in pediatric and adult patients.
CONTRAINDICATIONS: RECELL® is contraindicated for: the treatment of wounds clinically diagnosed as infected or with necrotic tissue, the treatment of patients with a known hypersensitivity to trypsin or compound sodium lactate (Hartmann’s) solution, patients having a known hypersensitivity to anesthetics, adrenaline/epinephrine, povidone-iodine, or chlorhexidine solutions.
WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS: Autologous use only. Wound beds treated with a cytotoxic agent (e.g., silver sulfadiazine) should be rinsed prior to application of the cell suspension. RECELL® is provided sterile and is intended for single-use. Do not use if packaging is damaged or expired. Choose a donor site with no evidence of cellulitis or infection and process skin immediately. A skin sample should require between 15 and 30 minutes contact with Enzyme. Contact in excess of 60 minutes is not recommended. RECELL® Enzyme is animal derived and freedom from infectious agents cannot be guaranteed.
PRECAUTIONS: RECELL® is not intended for use without meshed autograft for treatment of full-thickness burn wounds. The safety and effectiveness of RECELL® without meshed autograft have not been established for treatment of partial-thickness burn wounds: on the hands and articulating joints, >320 cm2, in patients with wounds totaling >20% total body surface area (TBSA). The safety and effectiveness of RECELL with autografting have not been established for treatment of full-thickness burn wounds: on the hands and articulated joints, and in patients younger than 28 days of age (neonates).
SPECIAL PATIENT POPULATIONS: The safety and effectiveness of RECELL® have not been established for treatment of acute thermal partial-thickness burn wounds in pediatric patients younger than 18 years of age.
