Applications for Tissue Transplants

tissue grafts reduce pain, reconstitute the quality of life of patients and improve the survival prognosis.

The use of human bone grafts will help to replace accident- or operation-related bone loss, to effect a faster cure or to avoid cancer as well as amputations. Tissue transplants would contribute to a significant improvement in the quality of life and social reintegration and ability to work faster. In many cases allografts can help to avoid additional surgery to remove bone from the patient and prevent complications resulting from the donor site.

Tendon grafts, such as the knee allow patients to return to an active life and prevent the artificial stiffening of the joint. In many cases, transmission of the corneas of the eyes, the patients receive vision and prevent blindness. For large-scale burns, associated with high mortality, life can be saved through skin donation. Chronic wounds (e.g. leg ulcers), tumor-related soft tissue loss and hernias can be treated successfully with special skin transplants.

Furthermore a rarer, but important example is the use of the connective tissue covering the front thigh muscle (fascia lata) for immediate surgical closure of congenital defects of the abdominal wall (Gastrochisis) in newborns.
