Rotation flaps constitute a time-honoured method for repair of small-to-moderate scalp defects, in effect even in the era of microsurgical reconstruction. A case of cicatricial pressure alopecia that was successfully repaired using the Bardach modification of the curved tripod flap confirms the value of this flap in scalp reconstruction. The main advantages of this method are the natural appearance of the final result due to preservation of hair orientation, and the uniform distribution of the wound-closure tension over a wide peripheral area of the scalp, although extensive undermining is generally required.
