Medical - Medical (general) / wound healing
Italian term or phrase: interfaccia
I'm translating a leaflet about HYAFF-based biomaterials.
"Once on contact with serum or wound exudate, HYAFF forms a hydrophilic gel which covers the wound and creates a hyaluronan-rich "INTERFACCIA" which is the optimal moist environment conducive to granulation and wound healing".
On many documents similar to those I'm translating, I've often found the word "scaffold". Do you think it could be the same as the italian "interfaccia"?
