Dr. Peter Blume recently published an article in the Journal of Diabetic Foot and Ankle entitled “An overview of factors maximizing successful split-thickness skin grafting in diabetic wounds”.
From the abstract:
Open wounds, from ulcerations or slow healing, are one of the comorbidities in diabetic patients that can lead to amputation. Therefore, an optimal way to close and heal wounds quickly in diabetic patients is required. Split-thickness skin grafts (STSG) offer a quick method of wound closure for diabetic patients. This article review will look at causes of failure in STSG, and ways to optimize success.
