Porcine heterograft dressings for split-thickness graft donor sites.

As compared with previous methods of donor site care, procine heterograft dressings allow the donor site to heal faster, require less postoperative care, are associated with a lower infection rate and eliminate virtually all of the pain of the split-thickness wound. Our experience supports that of others. We believe our modifications of this technique to be superior to previous modalities of donor site care.
