PMID:  857625     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Nondelayed regional skin flaps for reconstruction following radical ablative surgery in the head and neck have become a significant advance. Radical extirpation of large, recurrent or postirradiation persistent cancer would be prohibitive without the use of regional skin flaps in reconstruction. The incorporation of portions of rib, clavicle or scapula within a skin flap has allowed reconstruction of the mandible for both functional and cosmetic improvement.
