study is designed to evaluate the effects of various blood elements on
wound healing and soft tissue ingrowth into a synthetic porous material
and into an acellular human dermal graft. Comparing the results in
these two materials will give a greater understanding of the factors
involved in tissue ingrowth into porous materials.
Project Co-Investigator is Gene Ukrainsky, M.D.
