History: 61 year old female sustained an injury to her right wrist resulting in complete loss of skin over a large area measuring 10 x 6 cm. The existing skin had previously become infected and required debridement. I recommended a skin graft to provide coverage to the area.
Diagnosis: Dorsal wrist large skin defect
Treatment: Full thickness skin graft to wrist and hand
Outcome: Over the next 6 weeks the skin graft became fully incorporated and she regained full motion and full function of her hand.
