Abstract

With continuing advances in microsurgery, the importance of free flap transfers in reconstruction has increased in every branch of surgery. Several free flaps (both simple and compound) will be described. The transfer of a bulk of tissue by microvascular tissue transfer is a reliable and proven method of reconstruction. The objective for microvascular surgery is to develop techniques of tissue transfer that restore function and improve appearance. There is no greater challenge than reconstructive surgery of the head and neck.
