Abstract

By restricting reconstructive options to three main ‘workhorse’ flaps and by utilising a simultaneous two-team approach for tumour ablation and flap elevation, success rates comparable to international standards have been achieved. Limited resources should not be regarded as an impassable barrier to providing a successful microvascular head and neck reconstructive service. Level of Evidence: Level III, risk/prognostic study.
