Epidermal Graft Post-Op Care
Bacitracin was added to Xeroform then covered with Kerlix followed by a total contact cast

  • Dress the donor site per facility protocol
  • Dress and care for epidermal graft sites using the protocols typically used for thick split-thickness skin grafts
  • Similar to dressing INTEGRA™ Matrix Wound Dressing sites, build dressings in layers and immobilize joints in a flexed position
  • Change dressings every third day or as needed
  • If the epidermal graft seems to "disappear", obtain cultures. In some cases, this is typically the result of the graft being too thin or the presence of infection.

        - If negative, continue to dress normally

        - If positive, administer antibiotics and continue to monitor closely
