Abstract

A graft is a tissue or collection of tissues completely detached from the organism and subsequently repositioned. Unlike a flap, a graft retains no vascular attachment but survives by imbibition. The vascularisation of the receptor site is therefore an essential factor determining the survival of a graft. The size of the graft is the second factor that influences the survival of a graft: the larger it is, the less the chances of its survival.
