On the other hand, split thickness skin graft may be used as a micrograft shape after the mincing process, which reduces of the graft size in a few milimimetre. In this study; 6 patients with skin defect was admitted in our clinic, and their skin defect was treated with micro skin graft. Expansion ratio was 1: 15.
RESULTS: Epitelization on the wound surface was complated in 4 to 6 weeks and cobblestone appearence was observed after the wound coverage.
CONCLUSION: Skin defect coverage with micrograft is an effective technique like the other skin graft coverage methods.
