The procedure of skin grafting has been performed since 3000BC and, with modern  technology, has evolved through the years. While the development of new techniques and devices has significantly improved the functional as well as the aesthetic results from skin grafting, the fundamentals of skin grafting have remained the same, a healthy vascular granulating wound bed free of infection. Adherence to the recipient bed is the most important factor in skin graft survival and research continues introducing new techniques that promote this process. Biological and synthetic skin substitutes have also provided better treatment options as well as HLA tissue typing and the use of growth factors. Even today, skin grafts remain the most common and least invasive procedure for the closure of soft tissue defects.
It is with great pleasure that I bring you this updated collection of current concepts, the latest research, and future perspectives on skin grafting. We would like to extend a sincere thanks to the contributors of this project and encourage them to continue in their quests for solutions. We would also like to thank the entire staff at InTech for their ongoing support in the completion of this project and their dedication in bringing high-quality research and knowledge accessible across the world. It is the intent that this resource will serve as a reference for clinical decisions and generate ideas for future research, that when combined, will continue to optimize both functional and aesthetic patient outcomes.
