Temporary ectopic implantation with secondary replantation at the anatomic site is useful in salvage of extremities or organs [Godina M, Bajec J, Baraga A. Salvage of the mutilated upper extremity with temporary ectopic implantation of the undamaged part. Plast Reconstr Surg 1986;78: 295-99; Chernofsky MA, Sauer PF. Temporary ectopic implantation. J Hand Surg [Am] 1990;15:910-14; Matloub HS, Yousif NJ, Sanger JR. Temporary ectopic implantation of an amputated penis. Plast Reconstr Surg 1994;93:408-12; Hallock GG. Transient single-digit ectopic implantation. J Reconstr Microsurg 1992;8:309-11; Graf P, Groner R, Horrl W. Temporary ectopic implantation for salvage of amputated digits. Br J Plast Surg 1996;47:174-77; Yousif NJ, Dzwierzynski WW, Anderson RC, et al. Complications and salvage of an ectopically replanted thumb. Plast Reconstr Surg 1996;97:637-40; Wang J-N, Tong Z-H, Zhang T-H, et al. Salvage of amputated upper extremities with temporary ectopic implantation followed by replantation at a second stage. J Reconstr Microsurg 2006;22:15-20]. Temporary ectopic implantation is usually considered due to poor conditions for replantation at the anatomic site. We report a case of near-total scalp avulsion treated by temporary implantation to the lower abdomen with secondary replantation.
