Clinical use of homograft stored by vitrification.

Author information

Burn Unit, 304th Hospital, Beijing.


Using 20% DMSO and 6% propylene glycol in Kreb' Ringer phosphate solution as cryopotective agent for homograft vitrification storage, the viability of stored homograft (79.2%) was higher than that of slow cooling storage (59.7%). About 540000 cm2 of vitrified homograft were used to cover the wounds after excision of burn eschar in 135 patients with major burns. The take-rate was over 94%. The cryopreservation of skin by vitrification can improve the viability and quality of skin and save time and cost.
