The surgical treatment of pressure sores has improved with the development of many techniques to provide coverage of these defects. Few deliver sensate coverage. This report describes tissue expansion of back skin to provide definitive sensate coverage of a pressure sore, thereby preventing its recurrence. Follow-up of 5.5 years is presented with a review of the literature.
