Rothenberger, Jens; Constantinescu, Mihai A; Held, Manuel; Aebersold, Daniel M; Stolz, Anja; Tschumi, Christian; Olariu, Radu (2016). Use of a Polylactide-based Copolymer as a Temporary Skin Substitute for a Patient With Moist Desquamation Due to Radiation. Wounds, 28(7):E26-E30.

Abstract

Skin reactions are known adverse effects of radiation therapy. Despite advances in skin care products, there is still a demand for optimal skin care products to improve the therapy of these lesions. The authors report the use of a polylactide-based copolymer (Suprathel, PolyMedics Innovations GmbH, Denkendorf, Germany) as a temporary skin substitute for covering the skin defects of a patient with moist desquamation due to radiation.
