Reconstruction of a defect after harvesting a radial forearm flap using a narrow pedicled paraumbilical perforator-based subdermal vascular network (super-thin) flap



Reconstruction of a defect after harvesting a radial forearm flap using a narrow pedicled paraumbilical perforator-based subdermal vascular network (super-thin) flap



Scandinavian Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Hand Surgery 38(5): 281-283



The radial forearm flap is one of the most reliable flaps, but it has serious cosmetic donor site morbidity. We therefore reconstruct the defect after harvesting a radial forearm flap using a narrow pedicled paraumbilical perforator-based subdermal vascular network (super-thin) flap to overcome this problem.
