Transposition of expanded cervical-shoulder skin flaps for the repair of cicatricial contracture deformity of neck



Zhonghua Wai Ke Za Zhi 38(4): 285-286



To evaluate the efficacy of expanded cervical-shoulder skin flap in the treatment of cicatricial contracture deformity of neck, and improve the method for the repair of soft tissue defect of neck. 12 patients with cicatricial contracture of neck were treated by pre-expanded cervical-shoulder skin flap and then transposition for the reconstruction of the defect after cervical scar resection. All the 24 flaps were survived. Postoperative follow-up for 6 months to one year showed that the cervico-mandibular function and the external appearance of the flaps were satisfactory without swelling and contracture. Pre-expanded cervical-shoulder skin flap is available for the treatment of cicatricial contracture deformity of neck.
