Negative pressure dressing is a new technique for acute and chronic wound treatment. We applied this method for the fixation of the skin grafts of five cases (nine ulcers) and had excellent graft take. Compared to the conventional tie-over bolster, this method provides tight and equal pressure on the grafts located on the complicatedly curved surface, better drainage without surgical skill. Negative pressure dressing can be a useful option for dermatologic surgical reconstruction.
