Over the first 48 h the graft survives by plasmatic imbibition, that is, absorption of fluid into the graft due to accumulation of osmotically active metabolites and denatured matrix proteins. This fluid may contribute to cell nutrition and may keep vascular channels within the graft open until it is revascularized. Thin grafts survive this process better than thicker ones. The graft is revascularized over a period of 3-4 days with vessel anastomoses between the wound bed vasculature and existing vessels within the graft (inosculation) and by direct fibrovascular ingrowth from the wound bed into the graft matrix forming new vascular channels.
