2nd DEGREE BURN


This patient presented with deep second degree burns to his left forearm and back of the hand. Following the removal of the damaged skin, his physician applied Cytal™ Burn Matrix technology to the exposed area. Typically, burn cases scar completely over the affected area as a result of the trauma to the skin.

Nine days post-treatment the patient showed minimal scarring and the development of site-specific tissue. Impressively, 60 days following initial application, the patient’s arm showed pigmentation, hair formation and favorable range of motion.

  • Patient experienced severe 2nd degree burns to extremities. Skin grafting is standard of care to close wound and avoid infection.

  • Minimal scarring to site-specific tissue just nine days post treatment with
    Cytal Burn Matrix technology.

  • Thirty-two days post Cytal application.
