Abstract :

To overcome the lack of response in many patients to pharmacological and UV-treatments; a number of surgical techniques to transplant back pigment cells to the white lesions have been developed. Several of these techniques have been used in clinical practice for many years and have formed an important part of the arsenal of standard treatments used today. The methods can be used to repigment the skin in vitiligo, piebaldism, halo naevi, burn wounds and chemical leucoderma. In segmental vitiligo, piebaldism and burn wounds, transplantation methods are often the only effective means to restore the pigmentation in the affected areas. At the lecture I will share my experience in the field of Vitiligo with you and discuss: â�?¢ Why surgical treatments are such important approaches in repigmentation therapy. â�?¢ What kinds of leucoderma are possible to treat? Possibilities and limits! â�?¢ The foundation for the surgical decision making process and selection of appropriate patients. â�?¢ An easy to grasp summery of the current transplantation techniques and methods for preparing the recipient site. â�?¢ Advantages and disadvantages of specific methods. â�?¢ Limitations and strategy depending on the locations of the anatomical areas to be treated. â�?¢ A slightly more detailed direction of the three most useful transplantation methods. â�?¢ The importance of appropriate information to the patient.
