Transposed skin graft for wound closure after Cincinnati incision. Experience in 7 patients with severe foot deformities.

I report a technique of wound closure by a transposed skin graft after operative treatment of foot deformities, using a Cincinnati incision. Three-dimensional correction of severe foot deformities (congenital talipes equinovarus, congenital vertical talus, etc.) results in skin excess on one side of the foot and lack of this on the opposite side. The skin excess can be cut out and used as a full-thickness skin graft for wound closure on the opposite side of the foot.
