[Results following free skin transplantations].Klin Monbl Augenheilkd. 1986 Apr; 188(4):291-4.KM
The present paper reports on the technique and results of free full-thickness skin grafts after tumor excision in 23 cases. The functional and cosmetic results were good or even excellent. No ischemia or shrinkage of the grafts was observed. The difference in color between the graft and the surrounding skin disappeared within months. The author recommends free skin grafting in particular for defects of the inner canthus, where the results obtained are much better than those achieved with the Fricke operation, which are cosmetically poor.
