Full-thickness reconstruction of cheek defect involving oral commissure with forearm tendinocutaneous flap



Full-thickness reconstruction of cheek defect involving oral commissure with forearm tendinocutaneous flap



British Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery 34(1): 26-27



An 82-year-old man underwent full-thickness reconstruction of the cheek for a defect of the oral commissure resulting from a T-3N-1M-0 squamous cell carcinoma. He had previously had both radiotherapy and chemotherapy. A tendinocutaneous flap from the forearm incorporating palmaris longus was used for static reconstruction. The vermilion was then reconstructed with rotation flaps from the contralateral vermilion. Oral function was restored, and he had no problems with drooling or speech.
