Abstract

Large scalp defects that include periosteum set surgeons problems in closing the defect and in reconstruction of the hair-bearing area. The external tissue extension (ETE) technique together with a skin expansion device allowed us to reduce a 12 x 7.5 cm scalp defect and to construct a self-closing flap.
