Abstract: For centuries, cranial outer table perforations were used to treat scalp avulsions that compromised the underlying periosteum. However, its use declined with the development of newer alternatives such as free-flap transpositions and scalp replantation. We report a case of extensive scalp avulsion with a large area of bone devoid of its periosteum. Outer calvarial plate perforations were drilled to promote granulation tissue growth. Skin grafts were used as a temporary coverage. The remaining scalp was then expanded, and the flaps obtained allowed a satisfactory coverage of the area of alopecia. The objective of this report is to bring this treatment method again into the set of possibilities to be considered when planning scalp reconstruction, as it is a feasible alternative and enables good results. © 2012 Springer-Verlag.
