Do rhomboid flaps provide more elongation than Z-plasty flaps? An experimental study.


BACKGROUND AND AIM A Z-plasty flap is one of the most widely used geometric relaxation methods to release contracture bands. A rhomboid flap is a lesser used geometric relaxation method than a Z-plasty flap. This study aimed to determine the length and rate of elongation provided by rhomboid and Z-plasty flaps. METHODS Bilateral contracture bands were… (More)
