NAVARRO CUELLAR, C. et al. Reconstruction of the scalp with a free flap of omentum. Rev Esp Cirug Oral y Maxilofac [online]. 2004, vol.26, n.4, pp.249-256. ISSN 2173-9161.

Scalp defects may have different etiologies. Oncologic resections, postraumatic lesions and infectious wounds may lead to a great variety of defects in size and extension. In order to accomplish the reconstruction we have different surgical techniques such as local and regional flaps and tissue expanders. Nevertheless, for more extensive defects free flaps are the only reconstructive possibility. We present the case of a patient with multicentric squamous cell carcinomas previously with radiotherapy. He underwent wide resection and was reconstructed with an omentum free flap.

Keywords : Scalp; Omentum free flap.
