Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In neonatal intensive care units, extravasation is one of the most common injuries occurring in infants as a complication of infusion therapy. These very preterm infants have immature skin which is easily damaged. They often require a longer duration of intravenous therapy, and obtaining intravenous access can be difficult. An invasive treatment should be avoided, whenever possible, particularly for very immature infants. In our Special Operative Unit for ulcers and difficult-to-heal wounds, University of Rome, we successfully treated a premature neonate, who experienced extravasation of hypertonic fluid, using dermal substitutes and products of regenerative medicine.
