In severe wounds in which primary closure is not feasible, intervention with alternative coverage is warranted. Success will depend on bed revascularization, graft take, and immobilization in the wound bed. Adherence may be hindered in different anatomical locations, such as limbs or back, leading to graft loss. Several methods have been described for fixation. Case Report We report the case of a pediatric multiple-trauma patient with an exposed pelvis wound and extensive fractures in the dorsolumbar region.
