It was intended to promote tissue growth in the areas where it was surgically inserted so that patient’s cells would effectively repopulate the treated area. It worked by putting human skin through a de-celling process, which resulted in collagen bio-product and a skin graft was made. This was done so that the body could incorporate the graft into its own blood vessels and tissues quickly. However later it was used for a variety of purposes including hernia repair surgery, breast reconstruction and dental work.
