Burn wound management usually can be achieved successfully without reliance on any free tissue transfers. This is true partly because tissue expansion techniques for the creation of local flaps have become increasingly versatile and are a simpler alternative when vascularized tissues are required. However, in special circumstances both concepts can be combined to further enhance reconstruction after burn injury. In addition, pretransfer expansion of free flap donor sites has many advantages… CONTINUE READING
