    Abstract

    One hundred seven granulating or decrustation wounds in 58 patients were grafted with microskin grafts of different sizes. The modified procedure has been used successfully for different wound sites, such as limb, chest, abdomen, and the back, with satisfactory results. Signs of epithelialization were shown within 5 to 22 days in 40 patients. The wound healing rate was 94.4%, including 71.9% total healing rate and 22.4% improved healing rate. We think that this method could be applied to either granulation or decrustation wounds in addition to excision wounds.
