Survival of skin graft depends primarily on quality of the bed to which they are applied. Hyalomatrix is a bilayer of an esterified hyaluronan scaffold beneath a silicone membrane. The scaffold delivers hyaluronan to the wound bed, and the silicone acts as temporary epidermal barrier. We applied this to infected or chronic skin defects for pre-treatment before skin graft. Hyalomartix was applied for 2∼4 weeks and skin graft was performed after removal of that. Infection was controlled successfully and fresh granulation tissue bed was formed in all 7 cases. Skin grafts were successful in 6 cases out of 7 cases and partial loss of the graft was in 1 case. Hyalomatrix appeared to be good for pre-treatment of wound bed.
