General informationThis section has been translated automatically.
- The medially pointing tip of a wedge-shaped defect is undermined towards the sides in the sense of an expansion plastic, mobilised and then closed by button sutures as far as possible without tension. In the case of the residual triangular defect, one leg is extended by incision to form a sliding flap. The latter can be rotated into the residual defect or moved horizontally. It is not always necessary to create a small, laterally offset counter triangle at the outer incision line.
- Indications: Tumour excisions in the area of the lateral eyelid angle (fig. 1 a, b, c), in the infraorbital region and in the area of the lateral nose at the transition to the infraorbital region (fig. 2 a, b, c, d, e).
