Caption: Mesh skin graft. A surgeon gently lifts a mesh skin graft with tweezers. This type of skin graft is used when the patient has suffered such exten- sive burns that there is little healthy skin left from which to take grafts. The sample of skin is rolled through a contraption like a pasta-making machine (behind hands), which stretches it into a hexagonal mesh that can cover a wider area. The machine in this picture trebles the area the graft can cover. Once transplanted, the skin grows to fill in the gaps in the mesh. Skin grafts are pieces of living skin transplanted from one part of the body to another. Photographed at Hopital Edouard Herriot, Lyon, France.
