Suction Blister Grafting
Suction blistering is a technique used in dermatology to treat chronic wounds,
such as non-healing leg ulcers. When a wound is not healing properly,
an autologous skin graft is the best option, to prevent rejection of the tissue.
Since autologous transplantation cannot always be performed, a substitute has to be used,
such as cultured skin. However, this technique is costly and time-consuming. Other uses
of suction blisters are to provide transplantation donor
tissue for vitiigo research.
