Dorsal Wrist Skin Graft – Franko

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.
