General information
This section has been translated automatically.

  • The principle of defect coverage corresponds largely to that of transversal displacement flap plasty, with the difference that the short side of the excision wedge is continued in a concave incision to protect adjacent anatomical structures, e.g. in the vicinity of cartilage-supported tissue. Likewise, the distal lesion-near incision will be made in concave alignment. The application of a contralateral relief triangle reduces the flap tension.
  • Indications: Ear, nose and lower lid area.
