Free radial forearm flap in the reconstruction of the mouth floor after removal of a tumor by pull-through method



Free radial forearm flap in the reconstruction of the mouth floor after removal of a tumor by pull-through method



Fogorvosi Szemle 85(9): 275-281



Free radial forearm flap was used to replace the tissue defect caused by pull-through operation for cancer of the mouth in 13 cases. There was no total or partial flap failure. The greatest advantage of the method is that the restriction of the tongue movement is less when compared to the results of other methods since the thin forearm flaps are well adaptable and are of a pliable nature. The newly developed lower alveolar crest makes the prosthetic rehabilitation possible.
