Sole to Palm Full Thickness Skin Graft
For proper functioning of the hand, palmar skin, an integral part of the hand, plays an important role, and any defect in it, whether traumatic or pathologic, should be meticulously resurfaced. The conventional skin graft is far from satisfactory for the repair of a palmar skin defect. Consequently, sole to palm full thickness skin graft was proposed in 1955 by Webster1, and used subsequently by Le Worthy (1963)2 and Micks (1967)3.
