The treatment of choice for the avulsed scalp is microvascular replantation. After replantation there are numerous arterial anastomoses, with venous congestion. Usually an effort to establish inflow through two arterial anastomoses is made. We elected to anastomose one artery and multiple veins in each of our patients. We present three consecutive successful replantations of total scalp avulsion, using only one arterial anastomosis, and multiple veins. Surprisingly, two of the patients regained their ability to elevate their eyebrows actively.
