Abstract

Partial-thickness skin graft is of high prevalence in reconstructive and plastic surgeries. The lack of a standard method for dressing the donor site has made the management method of this site as one of the less satisfactory aspects of the partial-thickness skin graft surgery, and even in some cases, it can lead to improper treatment, dry ulcers, prolonged healing (reconstruction) time, and deep scars. The present study was conducted at 15 Khordad Hospital in order to identify and determine the best and most appropriate (suitable) method from among the methods used in this medical center. This randomized clinical trial was conducted on 40 patients undergoing split-thickness skin graft surgery at 15 Khordad Hospital, Tehran, Iran. Considering the determined objectives in the present study as well as investigation of these 13 variables, it can be claimed that dressing the split-thickness skin graft donor site with separator layer is the preferable technique due to its better outcomes including shorter ulcer healing time and less pain and discomfort in 48 hours and 10 days after removal of the graft.
