Brief Summary:
Skin graft fixation is essential for the success of its survival. There are several common methods for skin graft fixation including sutures, skin staples and glue. The study objective is to compare between skin graft fixation with staples and glue in burn patients. The study is retrospective. It Includes 44 patients that were hospitalized in the burn unit, Rabin Medical Center, Israel with 2nd and 3rd degree burns, total body surface area 1-50% during 1/2002-5/2003.All patients were operated for debridement and skin grafting. In 29 patients the skin graft was fixated with staples and in 15 with cyanoacrylate glue (histoacryl). The parameters that will be compared are skin graft take, hospitalization length and local infection.
