The Integra™ dermal substitute is an advanced, proprietary bilayer matrix which serves as a scaffold for dermal regeneration. It is composed of a mix of bovine cartilage and shark chondroitin. Once covered, re-epithelization can be expected in 2-3 weeks. At this point, half of the bilayer is removed, and a very thin split-thickness graft can be implanted. The immediate availability of the Integra™ product allows for implantation at time of debridement. It is a staged procedure however, and necessitates two trips to the operating room.
