Objective vascular assessment is frequently required before microvascular reconstruction involving the lower extremities. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the reliability of magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) for preoperative assessment before free flap surgery. Five patients underwent preoperative MRA: one before fibula harvest for oromandibular reconstruction, and four before muscle free flap reconstruction of the lower extremity. In all patients, the tibioperoneal trunk, anterior… CONTINUE READING
