We have shown the effectiveness of using externally attached frames made of Kirschner wires in fixing grafts. The technique has proved to be useful for securing grafts to graft beds and it has prevented the edges of the grafts from lifting. With simple materials and a simple technique, the tie-over method combined with external wire frames has brought about better results in sheet skin grafting.
