Abstract

Abstract MY COLLEAGUES and I have continued to explore, from time to time, the possibilities of the cutis graft from a theoretic as well as from a practical standpoint. Certainly the field of its usefulness is wide. We have kept in mind the substance of the observations made by various surgeons concerning the special merits of cutis as repair material, such as its pronounced tensile strength and freedom from the tendency to split, the lack of which has been an unfortunate characteristic of fascia lata when subjected to lateral strain.1 Cutis vascularizes quickly, takes easily and well and is gradually transformed into fibrous tissue. We have made use of cutis tissue whenever and wherever we would have used fascia lata in the past and, we feel, with superior results.2 An extended review of our cases has been made through the medium of patients returning for check-up and by correspondence References 1.
