Abstract

OBJECTIVE. To discuss the role of skin grafts in the functional repair of lower extremity ulcerations. METHODS. The indications, types of skin grafts, and the methods of harvesting grafts are described. RESULTS. Detailed description of our method of bedside split-thickness skin grafting with both pinch and mesh grafts in hospitalized patients is given. We also discuss post-operative care and complications seen with skin grafting. CONCLUSION. Split-thickness skin grafting offers an important therapeutic option in the treatment of lower extremity ulcerations.
