BACKGROUND When tension at a cutaneous defect is too great for primary closure or causes distortion of surrounding anatomy, transposition flaps provide a useful reconstruction option. OBJECTIVE To review the tissue biomechanics of the rhombic, bilobed, and trilobed transposition flaps. MATERIALS AND METHODS A systematic evaluation of a cutaneous defect is provided to guide a logical approach to the design and execution of transposition flaps. RESULTS Applying key principles to the design… CONTINUE READING
