Skin replacement fish skin
Ingrowth of blood vessels and fibroblasts and building of granulation tissue

3D animation showing the Mode-of-action of a skin substitute for the treatment of severe wounds, which is made from cod fish skin. Unlike other types of skin replacement (such as pig skin), the fish skin in Kerecis still contains a whole range of natural skin components such as omega3, elastin, fibronectin, laminin, glycans, proteoglycans, lipids. These support wound healing e.g. by activating platelets. The pore structure of the skin replacement enables rapid ingrowth of blood vessels and fibroblasts and the formation of granulation tissue.
