The aim of our case report was to analyse the results obtained with the Matriderm® system and autologous skin grafting for the surgical treatment of skin necrosis of scrotum as a result of endovascular embolisation. We recruited one patient with scrotum skin necrosis as a result of endovascular embolisation admitted at the department of Plastic and Reconstructive surgery, University of Rome 'Tor Vergata'. The patient underwent Matriderm® system and autologous skin grafting for skin necrosis treatment. After a single treatment, reduction of the skin necrosis was obtained, after 30 days from the surgical treatment. Patient experienced a reduction in pain and a complete restoration of the loss in volume and quality of skin was noticed. Matriderm® system and autologous skin grafting is a simple, safe and feasible technique. When comparing this treatment with others, Matriderm® is a simpler, more economic and less time-consuming method, and does not require sophisticated laboratory facilities.

Abstract

The aim of our case report was to analyse the results obtained with the Matriderm® system and autologous skin grafting for the surgical treatment of skin necrosis of scrotum as a result of endovascular embolisation. We recruited one patient with scrotum skin necrosis as a result of endovascular embolisation admitted at the department of Plastic and Reconstructive surgery, University of Rome 'Tor Vergata'. The patient underwent Matriderm® system and autologous skin grafting for skin necrosis treatment. After a single treatment, reduction of the skin necrosis was obtained, after 30 days from the surgical treatment. Patient experienced a reduction in pain and a complete restoration of the loss in volume and quality of skin was noticed. Matriderm® system and autologous skin grafting is a simple, safe and feasible technique. When comparing this treatment with others, Matriderm® is a simpler, more economic and less time-consuming method, and does not require sophisticated laboratory facilities.
