The aim of this work was to evaluate some physical characteristics of a new biosynthetic membrane (Bioprocess(R)) used as temporary skin substitute for wound management. The tested characteristics, important for the clinical use of the membrane, were: permeability to some gases (O2, CO2 and N2) and water vapour, and absorption of fluids simulating a physiological-like environment. The tests were completed by scanning electron microscope (SEM) observations in order to verify the surface morphology before and after the tests. The results confirmed the good in vivo performance of this material.

Abstract

The aim of this work was to evaluate some physical characteristics of a new biosynthetic membrane (Bioprocess(R)) used as temporary skin substitute for wound management. The tested characteristics, important for the clinical use of the membrane, were: permeability to some gases (O2, CO2 and N2) and water vapour, and absorption of fluids simulating a physiological-like environment. The tests were completed by scanning electron microscope (SEM) observations in order to verify the surface morphology before and after the tests. The results confirmed the good in vivo performance of this material.
