Pinwheel flaps and scalp skin cancer – part one

Pinwheel flaps are useful for reconstruction of defects all over the scalp.   This photo shows a man with a large ulcerated cancer on the back of his head – the occiput of the scalp.

The pinwheel was marked out. The patient was given a general anesthetic and positioned face down for the operation to excise the cancer and perform the pinwheel flap. See next post for intra-operative photos.
