  • RECONSTRUCTIVE VERSATILITY OF THE PECTORALIS MAJOR MYOCUTANEOUS FLAP OTOLARYNGOLOGY-HEAD AND NECK SURGERY Strelzow, V. V., Finseth, F., Fee, W. E. 1980; 88 (4): 368-372

    Abstract:

    The pectoralis major myocutaneous flap is presented in its two basic forms: a muscle flap carrying a skin paddle and the continuous skin-muscle flap technique. The pertinent anatomy of the enveloping fascial planes is reviewed, stressing the increased latitude of safety afforded by elevating the vascular pedicle from the undersurface of the lateral muscle edge. The advantages of a deltopectoral flap outline in approaching the formation of the skin-muscle paddle are introduced. Clinical applications, advantages, and disadvantages are discussed.
