Traditionally, the most important parameters for success in free tissue transfer have been expertise in performing small vessel anastomoses, meticulous donor site dissection, and careful recipient vessel preparation. It has been our experience, in free flap transfers for head and neck reconstruction, that a very crucial, often unrecognized, parameter is the geometry of the vascular pedicle. This term encompasses the three-dimensional positioning of the nutrient vascular pedicle as well as… CONTINUE READING
