A rapid method of producing epithelial material suitable for covering skin defects after burns and avulsions is presented. In vitro grown keratinocytes suspended as single cells in human plasma were applied to the wound surface and covered with distended meshed xenograft. In this way it was possible in five clinical cases to obtain 25-80% epithelial coverage of wounds up to 200 times as wide as the donor area.
