Free flap monitoring with continuous tissue oxygen tension measurement

Free flap monitoring with continuous tissue oxygen tension measurement Intraoperative and postoperative free flap monitoring by means of oxygen tension measurement was carried out in 11 patients.

Abstract

Intraoperative and postoperative free flap monitoring by means of oxygen tension measurement was carried out in 11 patients. We used an invasive flexible microcatheter that allowed for measurement of oxygen tension in all types of free flaps. Two cases of the measured flaps were buried free flaps which do not allow monitoring by clinical assessment. All flaps monitored in this study survived. One case of displacement of the microcatheter occurred. In one patient, the tissue p O 2 monitor successfully detected early vascular thrombosis with subsequent reoperation and salvage of the free flap.
