Indications: 15-year-old boy was burned in a fire and assessed to have received burns to 75 percent of his total body surface area. He was transferred to a burn center for definitive treatment. Once stable, he was brought to the OR. Procedure: Due to extent of the patient’s burns and lack of sufficient donor sites, his full-thickness burns will be excised and covered with xenograft (skin substitute graft), and a split-thickness skin biopsy will be harvested for preparation of autologous grafts to be applied in the coming weeks, when available.
