Repair of skin covering osteoradionecrosis of the mandible with the fasciocutaneous supraclavicular artery island flap: case report.
MetadataShow full item record
Osteoradionecrosis of the mandible is a serious complication following radiotherapy for head and neck cancer. Reconstructive procedures in the head and neck region use a wide range of flaps for defect closure. The methods range from local, mostly myocutaneous flaps and skin grafts to free microsurgical flaps to ensure a satisfactory functional and aesthetic result. Moreover, the donor site defect needs to be closed, with as little as possible functional or aesthetic impairment.
