Several methods of skin grafting have been used to treat extensive burns with limited autogenous skin. A simple method which provides different expansions of 1:4, 1:6 and 1:9, with effective and uniform distribution of small skin graft was described by Meek in 1958 and has been reviewed in this study with our two years experience. This technique, however, became eclipsed by the introduction of mesh skin grafting. In 1964, a team of surgeons surgeons of Red cross hospital, Beverwijk, and two biomedical engineers of Humeca group improvised the imperfections of meek technique ,and this modified meek micrograft technique is now used world wide. We feel that The meek micrografting is better, reliable and cost effective method for coverage of large raw areas specifically for a developing country like ours where paucity of skin bank facility and availabilityof integra exists.
