Total scalp avulsion with microvascular reanastomosis: A case report and literature review

MA Plant | J Fialkov

Total scalp avulsion is a rare but potentially devastating injury that when treated (following a few basic principles) can have very good reconstructive results. The present article reviews the current literature and describes the steps involved in the successful replantation of a complete avulsed scalp of a 33-year-old woman. To the authors’ knowledge, the present case regarding replantation of a complete avulsed scalp using only a single artery is the first to be described in the Canadian literature.
