    Abstract

    The use of tissue expanders in reconstructive surgery has become well established, but their use has been associated with multiple complications. Salvage of expanded tissue after traumatic extrusion of the prosthesis has not been previously reported. We have outlined the principles involved in the management of such a case, and reviewed previously reported complications of tissue expansion.
