Role of skin stretching device for wound closure

Role of skin stretching device for wound closure Eur J Plast Surg (2002) 25:327 DOI 10.1007/s00238-002-0372-x EDIT OR’S COMMENT Ian T. Jackson Published online: 17 October 2002 © Springer-Verlag 2002 I am publishing this paper because it seems to be that, in many centers, the use of skin stretching has been aban- doned or forgotten. Therefore, it is reasonable that its use should be, once again, emphasized. As the authors have shown, it is a very useful method of obtaining closure in difficult situations, and it has the virtue of not leaving the patient with any additional scars or skin donor sites. Occasionally, it is necessary to remind our readers of techniques that seemed to have lost their popularity, for one reason or another. This comment refers to the article at I.T.
