Objectives: (1) To determine whether negative pressure dressings (NPDs) are superior to conventional compressive dressings (CDs) for split-thickness skin grafts (STSGs) placed on healthy, low-risk wounds, (2) To determine the cost difference of NPDs versus that of CDs.

Main Outcome Measurements: Patients were assigned outcomes based on postoperative… Expand
