'Dermodress' is a new temporary biological dressing (heterograft) composed of a pure neonatal bovine collagen I. The authors present their first trial with this skin substitute. Ten consecutive patients who required skin grafts were included in the pilot test group. The 'Dermodress' was tested on their donor sites and compared with 'Furacin' gauze. It was found that 'Dermodress' provided a covering that adhered excellently to debrided surfaces, without disturbing the healing processes underneath, for up to three weeks after application. The results point to the potential value of the 'Dermodress' for open wounds.
