Replantation is the treatment of choice in scalping injuries and should always be considered, even in case of a badly damaged scalp. Specific procedures regarding pre-, intra- and postoperative care are crucial to success in replantation. These include: haemodynamic stabilization of the patient without causing damage to possible donor vessels; cooling, cleaning and further proper care of the avulsed specimen; use of antibiotics and haemodilution to optimize the intra- and post-operative situation.
