 Introduction: Autologous Platelet Rich Plasma (APRP) and its clinical applications have drastically evolved since its first use in an open heart surgery to avoid excessive blood transfusion [8]. It is being widely used in the field of plastic surgery and cosmetic medicine because of its wound healing properties [9,10]. Split skin grafts are mostly commonly performed resurfacing procedures in plastic surgery and it mainly depends on the wound bed for its take. We present a case report of 11year old female with post burn contracture right foot for which contracture release and split skin grafting with APRP application for augmenting the take was performed under GA.

Keywords: APRP; Split Skin Grafts; Post Burn Contracture.
