Abstract

The most frequent complication of the bilayer "artificial skin", composed of a silicone sheet and collagen sponge described in a previous paper, was infection beneath it. This paper describes a new type of "artificial skin" in which microspheres containing antibiotics were installed beneath the silicone sheet, allowing a continuous release of antibiotics.
