    In contrast, de Bree et al. Nocini, R. Methods We retrospectively reviewed our experience with microsurgical free-tissue transfer in patients over the age of 60 whom we arbitrarily defined as "elderly". The comparative study option was used as a limit to refine the search. Your leg will require a bandage for approximately a week post-surgery, and over-the-counter painkillers are typically prescribed to help manage the acute pain following the operation.

    As the anatomy of these flaps has become more familiar, their reliability and versatility have increased. Free flap surgery microvascular is a highly complex and rigorous surgery that often requires a skin graft. Furthermore, obturators are inappropriate for defects that involve resection of the skull base, orbital contents, orbital floor, or soft tissues of the face. Results and discussion A total of 28 patients 20 male, 8 female; ranging 60 to 77 years underwent a free-tissue transfer for head and neck tumours.

    Results A total of 30 articles were included. Abstract Objective The present review focuses on comparative studies of reconstruction with free flaps FF versus pedicled flaps PF after oncologic resection. Once detected, malignant tumors of the neck or face are extracted as quickly as possible and the affected area must be reconstructed for cosmetic and functional purposes. For instance, a mandible surgery might receive a distant flap from the fibula, which is located all the way in the shin. TN classification.

Options include use of prosthetic obturators, pedicled flaps, and free flaps, sometimes combined with grafts or alloplasts [ 4 ]. In the following paper, an algorithmic approach to mid-facial, mandibular, oral cavity, and pharyngoesophageal reconstruction will be reviewed and expected outcomes discussed.

Pre-existing systemic disease could influence peri- and post-operative complications, and ASA status could be a well accepted way to select patients undergoing this surgery.
