VERSAJET hydrosurgery technique for the preparation of full thickness skin grafts and the creation of retrograde split thickness skin grafts



VERSAJET hydrosurgery technique for the preparation of full thickness skin grafts and the creation of retrograde split thickness skin grafts



Journal of Foot and Ankle Surgery 49(4): 404-407



Full- and split-thickness skin grafts continue to serve a vital role in lower extremity wound coverage, and meticulous preparation of the recipient site is vital to incorporation of the transplanted skin. A technique for the rapid, controlled preparation of full-thickness skin grafts and creation of thick-split thickness skin grafts from full-thickness donor tissue, using a high-pressure stream of saline solution, is described.
