Reversed radial forearm flap: an ad hoc flap for hand reconstruction

Reversed radial forearm flap: an ad hoc flap for hand reconstruction Complex wounds of the hand and vital structures are important to reconstruct. They should be covered as soon as possible in order to maintain the function of the hand. The reversed radial forearm flap is a versatile option for hand reconstruction. Reversed radial forearm flaps were harvested in 15 cases. Doppler ultrasound was used in all cases to evaluate the vascular status of the flap. No complications were observed in this series. All skin grafts healed well. The reversed radial forearm flap is a workhorse tool for the coverage of the hand. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png European Journal of Plastic Surgery Springer Journals

Abstract

Complex wounds of the hand and vital structures are important to reconstruct. They should be covered as soon as possible in order to maintain the function of the hand. The reversed radial forearm flap is a versatile option for hand reconstruction. Reversed radial forearm flaps were harvested in 15 cases. Doppler ultrasound was used in all cases to evaluate the vascular status of the flap. No complications were observed in this series. All skin grafts healed well. The reversed radial forearm flap is a workhorse tool for the coverage of the hand.
