Skin grafting is a modern addition to surgical procedure which involves replacement of skin from the uninjured area and providing coverage for wound area. Skin grafting is recommended for skin infection, deep burns, injury, pressure ulcers, skin cancer or reconstructive surgeries. There are two types of skin grafts: split-level thickness and full-thickness grafts in which split-level thickness includes removal of dermal and epidermal layers of the skin and full-thickness grafts involves removal of muscles and blood vessels. People with deeper tissue loss need a full-thickness skin graft to cover the wound. This requires an entire thickness of skin from the donor site, not just the top two layers. The skin graft after removal from the healthy area is carefully spread on the bare area where it is being transplanted and is left covered with the help of cloth for further recovery. Skin grafting is carried out with three types of instruments: knife, electrical dermatome and drum-type dermatome. Maximum skin grafting surgeries were performed by knife but due to advancements in medical devices dermatomes are now widely used. Dermatome is a surgical instrument which is used to create thin slice the skin in skin grafting. There are several types of dermatomes which have technologically advanced providing accuracy and control.
The choice of instruments in skin grafting usually depends on the surgeon experience; knives dermatomes are generally favoured with the surgeons of Great Britain and the continent, whereas dermatomes are favored in North America due to product innovation and accuracy. Dr. Earl Padgett along with his engineering co-worker George J. Hood discovered the semi-cylindrical calibrated dermatome which was based on the adhesion-traction principle and derived to be a reliable instrument in skin grafting. However, there were difficulties in obtaining grafts of consistent thickness and quality led to various modifications in skin grafting knives which later were available in skin grafting dermatome kits.
