Abstract

ZANINI, Maurício; MACHADO FILHO, Carlos D' Apparecida Santos  and  TIMONER, Fábio. Surgical sponge as a pressure dressing for skin grafts. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2004, vol.79, n.3, pp. 359-362. ISSN 1806-4841.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962004000300012.

Cutaneous graft is an effective way to treat wounds. A pressure dressing is important for the vitality of such grafts. We have observed that the use of surgical sponge as a pressure dressing on cutaneous grafts is feasible and recommend its use.

Keywords : surgery; graft survival; skin transplantation.
