Wound healing is a complex and dynamic process of replacing devitalized and missing cellular structures and tissue layers after injury. Wound healing is achieved through four precisely and highly programmed phases: hemostasis, inflammation, proliferation, and remodeling. For a wound to heal successfully, all four phases must occur in the proper sequence and time frame. After an severe trauma to the extremities of the limbs the skin necrose detaches as flaps remaining in place a large denuded area exposed to infection.The reduced mobility of the skin in these areas cause difficulty in healing process to occur complicating traumatic sequelae and functional impotence. The vicious scars are unsightly and often painful due to connective tissue contractility The purpose in wounds reconstruction using skin grafts is to complement dermal with denuded skin tissue surface and initiate an uniform healing a result of which the affected limb to resume the functionality. In this paper we present modalities ok skin grafts by heterotopic grafting and autografting with cutaneous flap pedicled
