The technique provides tissue of similar texture and color tothe defect to be covered and has the added advantage of minimal donor site morbidity.This study aimed to assess the results & complications in the correction of post burn scalpalopecia using a tissue expansion, prevention of implant extrusion, lower the infection rate intissue expansion and expander selection.Forty patients with scalp burn alopecia treated with tissue expansion of the scalp, wereincluded in this prospective study in Sulaimania hospital of burn and reconstructive surgery fromFebruary 2002 to September 2009 with age groups ranging from (4-30) years with an averageof 15.5 years. Twenty three patients were females.The time period between burn injury and reconstruction ranged between (4-25) years, theirscalp defects ranging between (5x10cm -13x25cm). We were able to completely reconstruct77.5% of the total patients with single or multiple sessions of expansions. The remaining 22.5%patients have benefited from reduction in the percentage of alopecia and recreation of anteriorhair line to camouflage their defects. Major complications occurred in 6 cases(15%), in whichthe expansion process interrupted with removal of the expander.In conclusion, It is not always possible to measure the absolute efficacy of a surgical techniqueor determine a general guideline its indication of the tissue expansion procedure althoughafflicted with a broad range of possible complications, the tissue expansion procedure remains avaluable and reliable technique for the reconstruction of post burn alopecia of the scalp.

Abstract

Background and objective: Reconstruction of post burn scalp alopecia using tissue expansion represents, nowadays, the standard method of treatment for this pathology. Tissue expansion is a straightforward technique, providing large skin flaps whose color and texture matches the area to be reconstructed, achieving optimal final aesthetic result. The aim of this study was to evaluate the results and complications of using tissue expansion for post burn scalp alopecia reconstruction. Methods: Thirty four patients having post burn scalp alopecia were treated with scalp tissue expansion, using forty tissue expanders at Rizgary Teaching Hospital in Erbil from February 2009 to December 2014. The age group ranged from 7-35 years and the mean age of the patients was 16 years. Statistical package for the social sciences (version 18) was used for data entry and analysis. Results: Complete reconstruction of post burn alopecia was achieved in 82.35% of the total patients with either a single or multiple sessions of expansions. The remaining 17.65% were benefited from reduction in the percentage of scar and recreation of anterior hair line. The size of scalp alopecia ranged between 4x7cm-11x20cm. Major complications occurred in 3 cases (8.8%), in which the expansion process was interrupted with removal of expander, while minor complications happened in 4 cases (11.76%), which did not interrupt the expansion. Conclusion: The use of tissue expansion for reconstruction of post burn alopecia is a useful and safe technique, since it is the only procedure that allows the development of normal hair bearing tissue to cover the areas of alopecia
