Abstract

We present the case of a 38-year-old female who came to our Clinic 5 hours after injury with scalp avulsion due to entanglement of head scarf in the motorized machine  with a good final result after which the patient can use a wig. During the treatment, hyperbaric oxygen therapy was applied, after which we had a dilemma about the benefits of using it.


Key words: injury, scalp, replantation, surgery
