Abstract

in English, French

Proper positioning of a patient facilitates access and decreases frustration during surgical debridement of circumferential burns of the neck. The Mayfield swivel horseshoe headrest (Integra, USA) provides cranial support in either the supine or prone position for excision and skin grafting of the circumferential burns of the neck. This headrest can also be used during reconstruction of the neck.
