Method: Eleven patients with simple limb skin avulsion underwent large-area stereotypy full-thickness skin graft for wound repair. Results: Wounds were repaired very well as well as the late appearance and functions were satisfactory in all 11 patients. During follow-up, the hypertrophic scars were mild, the recovery of joint function was good, and no severe complications occurred. Conclusion: Appropriate timing and skin for the repair of wound was the key to reduce postoperative dysfunction after simple limb skin avulsion. Large-area stereotypy full-thickness skin graft in wound repair had the advantage of improved skin survival rate, good appearance and function of the limb.
