Skin Graft Attempt Unsuccessful Leading to Surgical Complications

Litigation Type - Surgical Complications

Client Injury - Injury to Scalp, Scarring

Our client was a young boy who was to undergo a skin harvest from his scalp for grafting of skin to his feet, related to burns he had sustained.  The intent by the surgeon was to harvest a split-thickness graft with an instrument called a dermatome.  However, a full-thickness portion of scalp was taken, resulting in traumatic alopecia and scarring.  It was necessary to harvest skin from a different area of the boy's body, and over the next several years, 3 additional procedures were done in attempts to excise the area of alopecia and scarring.  A similar procedure is anticipated to be performed when the boy is older.
