The purpose of this article was to review recent findings regarding strategies to promote healing of split-thickness skin grafts including topical phenytoin or platelet-rich plasma prior to graft application, fibrin sealant, or negative pressure wound therapy to stabilize a graft and to promote close adherence of the graft to the underlying wound bed and adjunctive therapies such as laser.
