Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Cutaneous defects of the neck require a different algorithm for reconstruction as compared to facial defects. Depending on the location and size of the defect, a variety of reconstructive techniques can be used, from secondary healing to pedicled or free flaps. Additionally, patient co-morbidities can negatively affect the outcomes of certain reconstructive options. We will describe a variety of techniques that are available to the head and neck or facial plastic surgeon for reconstruction of neck defects.
