We used the Doppler ultrasonic flowmeter to trace the temporal artery and its branches posteriorly to their anastomosis with the occipital vessels. Then we outlined a scalp flap (one on each side) along the course of these vessels. The scalp flaps were raised and transposed to the anterior hairline in one stage, as treatment for male pattern baldness. There was complete survival of both flaps, with immediate, normal, luxuriant growth of hair--which could be combed to cover the entire scalp.
