Skin Grafting

Author(s): Spandana vakapalli

Skin grafting is a method most commonly used for wounds on skin in a variety of clinical situations, such as defects after oncologic resection, scar contracture release, burn reconstruction, hair restoration, vitiligo, nipple-areola reconstruction, traumatic wounds, and congenital skin deficiencies. Even though currently less preferred than flap closures, grafting can create a good cosmetic result. Skin grafts, in compare to flaps, are completely detached from their blood supply, whereas flaps remain attached to a blood supply through a pedicle.
