Abstract

LOFEGO FILHO, José Anselmo et al. Skin grafts in cutaneous oncology. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2006, vol.81, n.5, pp. 465-472. ISSN 1806-4841.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0365-05962006000500010.

In cutaneous oncology, there are many situations in which skin grafts could be a good alternative for closing surgical defect. Dermatological surgeons should have enough knowledge about graft integration and contraction in order to not contradict the basic principles of skin transplantation. The authors review skin graft classification and physiology and make some surgical considerations on successful procedures.

Keywords : Skin neoplasms; Skin transplantation; Transplantation, homologous.
