Craniofacial reconstruction after tumor resections using vascularized outer table calvarial bone flaps.


The outer table of calvarium is a useful donor site for facial reconstruction after resection of tumors. Large defects, especially when associated with multiple operations and radiotherapy, are poor recipient beds for nonvascularized bone grafts. A technique for the transfer of vascularized outer table has been developed and used in 11 patients for reconstruction of tumor defects. Satisfactory correction of both functional and esthetic problems has been achieved with satisfactory long-term stability and low morbidity.
