At the Department of Plastic Surgery and Burns, Berufsgenossenschaftliche Unfalklinik Ludwigshafen-Oggersheim, a skinbank with typed skin has been established. The storage system consists of deep-freezing at -196 degrees C in liquid nitrogen. The transplantation of HL-A typed skin was evaluated from the clinical and histological point of view. Due to the effort necessary for such an undertaking this method is critically reviewed.
