Skin grafting is a surgery involving the transplantation of skin using various types of skin graft. Skin grafts are also used to treat extensive wounding or trauma and burns. Skin graft is small patch of skin, which is removed from skin of the other part of the patient’s body by a surgery. The patch of skin is transplanted or attached to the injured sit or the burnt site.

Skin grafts are ideally preferred post-surgery for skin cancers. Skin grafts are generally referred for local postoperative radiotherapy (PORT) to ensure closure of surgical bed created during radiotherapy. According to Cancer Research UK, ~15,400 new melanoma skin cancer cases are registered in the UK every year, accounting for 42 new cases every day. Incidence rates for melanoma skin cancer are projected to rise by 7% in the UK between 2014 and 2035, to 32 cases per 100,000 people by 2035. Likewise, according to the recent statistics published by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, in 2020, 19.3 million new cancer cases were registered, excluding 18.1 million for nonmelanoma skin cancer. Thus, an increase in the prevalence of skin cancer is likely to contribute to skin grafting in the coming future.
