Secondary intention healing of large Mohs defects of the forehead and temple

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Defects resulting from Mohs micrographic surgery may immediately be reconstructed with primary repair, flaps or grafts, or the wound may be allowed to heal by secondary intention. We experienced 3 cases of secondary intention healing using occlusive dressing and purse-string suture, and wounds were healed with excellent cosmetic and functional results. Therefore, we conclude that secondary intention healing of forehead and temple wounds is a safe and effective method of wound management after Mohs micrographic surgery.
