abstract

  • The host response to AlloDerm parallels normal wound healing. Host cell infiltrate increases steadily over a 14-day period. By 7 days after implantation, a large number of CD31 endothelial cells have infiltrated the matrix and early vessels are abundantly present. These vessels continue to mature by day 14. Finally, the authors show that AlloDerm composite flaps also support infiltration and development of a lymphatic network.
