PMID:  12946379     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A retroauricular reverse flow flap based on the anastomosis of the frontal branch of the temporal superficial artery with the corresponding vessel of the opposite side as well as with the ipsilateral supraorbital and supratrochlear arteries, was used in two clinical cases for forehead and facial reconstructions. The arc of rotation associated with the length of the pedicle allows its transfer, in a one-stage procedure, to cover small to medium defects of any part of the forehead, face and parts of the scalp. The procedure is safe, simple and causes minimum donor site morbidity.
