P045 Reconstruction of Total Scalp Defects With Cranial Involvement: An Evolving Paradigm

Arch Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg. 2006;132(8):874. doi:10.1001/archotol.132.8.874-b

Objective: Reconstruction of large scalp defects that involve the skull pose a unique challenge for the head and neck reconstructive surgeon. Complete extirpation of tumor often leaves large tissue deficits, with exposure of dura or brain. This article details the outcomes of various reconstructive methods for patients with large oncologic total and near-total scalp defects that involve the cranium and/or dura.

Design: Prospective cohort study
