Subcutaneous Island Pedicle Flaps

Subcutaneous Island Pedicle Flaps Abstract • The subcutaneous island pedicle flap is a useful and reliably successful means of closing small- to medium-sized cutaneous excisional defects. It is especially useful in areas where primary closure could result in distortion of critical features. The technique is conceptually straightforward and offers advantages over skin grafting and transposition flaps. We describe our experience with 60 consecutive, successful subcutaneous island pedicle flaps. (Arch Dermatol 1987;123:514-518) References 1. Esser FJS: Island flaps . NY Med J 1917;106:264. 2.
