■ Local anesthesia with articaine and adrenaline (e.g., B. Ultracain DSforte, Septanest with adrenaline 1/100,000) is administered in the form of a ring block below the harvest site, using an intradermal injection technique.
■ This is followed by intradermal infiltration anesthesia using 0.5 % prilo-caine with adrenaline.
■ Injection of a 0.9 % saline solution is employed to achieve tumescence of the donor area.
■ Caution: Inject the tumescence solution intradermally and subdermally; subgaleal injection is contraindicated! This precaution prevents injury to major nerves and blood vessels during the subsequent skin incision.
