Significant effort has been taken in designing repairs for defects of this type, to include soft-tissue flaps (including pericranium, galea aponeurotica, and frontalis or temporalis muscle) or to perform flee-tissue transfer.
Free skin grafts reconstruction requires an intact pericranium to supply vascularization to the graft.
The head is turned 30 degrees and a frontotemporal scalp incision is made from the level of the lower en of the tragus to the contralateral superior temporal line with anterior reflection of the pericranium.
This provided for a large anterior flap, which could be easily retracted to achieve wide exposure of the underlying pericranium and fascia.
