dc.description.abstract Background. Early excision of burn eschar and urgent skin cover is mandatory for survival in all major burns. The tremendous cost and time delay in cultured skin and the shortage of donor allograft can make early skin cover a life threatening problem for paediatric patients in this country. The Meek micrografting technique was introduced in 2003 as a rescue method to achieve epithelialisation in major burns. Objective. To evaluate its role in the management of major burns with reference to its efficacy, technical detail and role in major burn surgery. en_ZA
