Amniotic membrane as a cover for microskin grafts.

Author information

  • 1Department of Surgery, Dr Vaishampayan Memorial Medical College, Solapur, Maharashtra, India.


Twenty two granulating wounds were grafted with microskin grafts of 1 mm size and amniotic membrane was used to cover these grafts. In 16 patients, epithelialisation was complete by 10 days and the grafts remained stable. Fifteen-fold expansion was achieved in all these cases. The remaining 6 patients needed split thickness skin grafts due to failure of the microskin grafts. Human amniotic membrane as a cover for microskin grafts helped early epithelialisation and rapid wound healing.
