Composition and origin of Acellular Dermal Matrices.
The most common sites of harvest for dermis grafts are the buttocks and inner thigh or back. The dermis is a connective tissue layer sandwiched between the epidermis and subcutaneous tissue. The dermis is a fibrous structure composed of collagen, elastic tissue, and other extracellular components. A dermis graft is a surgical procedure in which a piece of dermis is transplanted from a deceased human donor, processed and transplanted to another.
Acellular dermal matrix (ADM) is a soft connective tissue graft generated by a decellularization process that preserves the intact extracellular skin matrix. Upon implantation, this structure serves as a scaffold for donor-side cells to facilitate subsequent incorporation and revascularization.
Our version is known as Neoderm ADM.
