Although free tissue transfers may be required to cover wounds of the head and neck with bone involvement and exposure, options lower on the reconstructive ladder should still be considered during the planning process. We present a case of an elderly gentleman with a history of cardiovascular comorbidity and neck radiotherapy, who sustained a deep flame burn injury to his scalp. Two delayed axial flaps, based on the superficial temporal and supraorbital arteries respectively, were used to obtain durable coverage of this complex wound.
