Aesthetic reconstruction of the vertex area of the scalp: Case report

Edoardo Raposio, Rolf E A Nordström, Pierluigi Santi

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A 62-year-old woman had a defect in the vertex of the scalp that was created by the excision of a basal cell carcinoma. This was closed with three local, hair-bearing, rhomboid flaps. This allowed us to reconstruct the natural whorl pattern of hair in this region.
