Abstract

When deciding on whether to surgically close a wound or allow granulation and epithelialization to occur, it is necessary to evaluate each patient individually. The patient's needs and desires, along with cost effectiveness, immediate versus delayed gratification, and convalescent time must all be considered. Also, the skill of the surgeon and the resources available to both the surgeon and the patient must be taken into consideration.
