Successful replantation of an avulsed scalp by microvascular anastomoses

Plast Reconstr Surg. 1976 Aug;58(2):133-6. doi: 10.1097/00006534-197608000-00001.


A totally avulsed scalp was replanted by microvascular anastomoses. This was feasible because suitable vessels were available in the superficial temporal region, and because the detached scalp was otherwise largely undamaged.
