MICROSKIN GRAFTING FOR VITILIGO
Microskin Grafting For Vitiligo describes the technique of using small skin particles prepared from ultra thin or thin split thickness skin grafts in the effective treatment of vitiligo. The technique benefits from a good expansion ratio, e.g. small donor skin to treat a large vitiliginous area. The book’s emphasis is on illustrating the concepts using numerous images and minimal text and thus enables a highly practical evaluation of the procedure. The book highlights that the technique is simple to learn and execute, cost effective, and can treat large areas in one operative session. Therefore, the book will be of interest to not only postgraduate students but also the clinical dermatologist, general practitioner and surgeon.
