Artificial bilayer dermis (graft for dermis defect) "PELNAC" is composed of an inner sponge layer of collagen and an outer layer of silicone. This is a new product that is able to reconstruct a dermis even in a serious defect, where bone, muscle, or tendon is exposed. Clinical results have indicated that "PELNAC" is very effective in functional and cosmetic views. The contracture of defects is found to be insignificant.
