The pedicle flap skin graft has several problems in its fixation between donor and reciepient side after grafting. The tortion, the tention, the flexion and the infection of the grafted pedicle flap including the wound are considered to be important. It is very difficult to check these points in gypsum bandage after grafting which is Commonly used.
Hoffmann's external osteotaxis was applied to this skin graft to resolve these problems. This methode suggested us to be very easy to check problem points. This Technique was applied to 6 cross leg, 3 cross finger and 5 abdominal flap cases.
