Abstract

Ten cases of the superficial temporal fascial flap (STFF) are presented. The indications for the STFF were ear reconstruction, maxillofacial injuries and malformations, and a chronic ulcer above the Achilles tendon. Nine pedicled and one free STFF were used. The flap size was up to a maximum of 12 cm in length and 8 cm in width. There was little aesthetic and no functional impairment at the donor site. There is no doubt that too little attention has been paid to the STFF in the past.
