Dear forum readers,
We recently operated on a patient (refer with nickname Doc 1).
He had some previous surgeies and presented some unique challenges.
His previous HT work is an instructive study for aspiring HT patients.Patient particulars
The patient is almost 30 and would have been a advanced NW 4/ early NW 5 if he had not got any HT.
Previous 2 strip HT surgeries were performed by a famous N. American HT surgeon.
The first HT was for 3500 grafts in the frontal area.
It was followed 4 months later by an 1100 grafts strip surgery, the grafts being placed in the crown area.
In both instances, surgical staples were used for closure of the strip wound.
