    Place of Service: Hospital

    3cm x3cm ulcer which is 1 cm deep at the right heel. This ulcer was sharply debrided and application of 9 mL of Flowable Integra wound graft was applied over the heel ulcer. The surgical site was then dressed with 4 x 4's Kerlix, and gauze and a posterior splint topped by an Ace bandage.

  2. Default grafts
