BACKGROUND Free tissue transfer is a method of moving any tissue from a donor area of the body to a recipient site and re-attaching the arteries and veins to the blood vessels at the recipient site by microvascular surgery. Improved microsurgical techniques have resulted in a high percentage of successful free tissue transfers. Post-operative monitoring of tissue viability can detect early problems in free tissue transfer which may allow early intervention and salvage. Although many flap… CONTINUE READING
