In 24 patients with electrical burns of the skull, the necrotic skull was treated by a new approach, which includes the use of an adjacent scalp flap to be rotated forward over the necrotic skull. The pathological findings of the full-thickness necrosed skull before and after scalp flap coverage have supported the point that subsequent regeneration of the necrosed skull occurs under the protection of a scalp flap.
