Pipeline: Soft Tissue Reconstruction
EXPLORING POTENTIAL APPLICATION IN SOFT TISSUE RECONSTRUCTION
Acute full-thickness skin defects that require soft tissue reconstruction can include traumatic wounds such as abrasions and degloving, which is a type of injury where the skin is removed from the underlying tissue.
Skin grafting is the standard of care for full-thickness, soft tissue reconstruction. In 2017 approximately 80% of acute wounds that required skin grafting were non-burn related injuries accounting for more than 200,000 procedures in the U.S. 
Investigational research with the RECELL® System for the treatment of soft tissue reconstruction persists in the medical community. For general information about our science and technology, please contact our Medical Affairs team.

Caution: The use of RECELL® as an adjunct to meshed autografts in patients undergoing reconstruction of skin defects not associated with a burn injury is limited by U.S. law to investigational use.
The RECELL® System is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of acute thermal burns in patients 18 years and older. Click here for Important Safety Information and Instructions for Use.
