Abstract

For the management of a full-thickness scalp avulsion injury, thorough wound debridement and immediate primary revascularization or a split-thickness skin graft may be necessary. Graft failure may be common situation thereby predisposing the individuals to unnecessary multiple operations. In the recent times, the use of omental graft has gained much popularity. In the present study, we describe an interesting case of chronic non healing scalp ulcer in a young woman who eventually underwent a free omental flap reconstruction with split-thickness skin graft and had satisfactory outcome.
