Erratum

Large scalp defects can present as a challenging clinical problem for a reconstructive surgeon. We present a patient with a large scalp defect following an infection after neurosurgical treatment. Reconstruction of a defect was performed using a free latissimus dorsi flap with split-thickness skin graft. For achieving good aesthetic result, we transplanted 1000 minigrafts in 3 sessions on the latissimus dorsi flap. In our opinion, hair transplantation on a free microvascular flap is a viable and easy procedure with good aesthetic outcome for treating residual alopecia after reconstructing large scalp defects.
