Rapid wound healing of scalp wounds devoid of periosteum with milling of the outer table and split thickness skin grafting
British Journal of Dermatology, 05/09/2012

This is beneficial in older patients sparing them from frequent doctor visits. Furthermore, early closure may reduce the risk of infection.
