La reconstruction esthetique au niveau du visage necessite l'utilisation de peau ayant les caracteristiques similaires a celle du site receveur. La peau locale et regionale demeure la plus utile, mais la quantite peut devenir insuffisante, tant pour la reconstruction que pour la fermeture primaire du site donneur. Les auteurs decrivent 3 cas qui illustrent l'utilisation de l'expansion tissulaire de la peau locale et regionale, permettant des reconstructions satisfaisantes et une fermeture du… Expand

Reconstruction of complex scalp defects: the "Banana Peel" revisited.
It is concluded that the multiple-flap reconstruction method as described by Orticochea may be useful in a small subset of patients, including older, severely debilitated patients who would be optimally treated with microvascular tissue transfer but cannot tolerate lengthy general anesthesia and young patients who will not accept a significant area of alopecia that might exist with other techniques, such as secondary intention, skin grafts, or free flaps.

Free Flap Reconstruction of the Scalp and Calvaria of Major Neurosurgical Resections in Cancer Patients: Lessons Learned Closing Large, Difficult Wounds of the Dura and Skull
The authors' data support the concept that free tissue transfer is a viable option in reconstruction of cranial defects, and although complications can occur in this high-risk population, successful reconstruction with free flaps was possible. Expand
Reconstruction of scalp defects with free flaps in 30 cases.
It is concluded that a free flap procedure is appropriate for scalp reconstruction in trauma, osteomylitis, and osteoradionecrosis cases, and following radical resection of malignant tumours. Expand
