Some 106 patients were included, 53 in each group. Median time to complete re‐epithelialization was 9·0 (95 per cent c.i. 8·3 to 9·7) days in the experimental group, compared with 13·0 (12·4 to 13·6) days in the control group (
The use of autologous skin cell suspension with hydrocolloid dressings accelerated epithelialization and improved healing quality of the donor site compared with hydrocolloid dressings alone. Registration number:
