1 month ago - By Journal of Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery
Surgeons have preferential ways of performing the venous anastomosis in the head and neck microsurgery. However, controversies exist regarding superiority of each method. This study aims to determine the effects of these variables on rates of thrombosis and flap failure and propose an algorithm to be used as a facilitator in the decision making process.208 microsurgical reconstructions on 199 patients from a single surgeon's data were evaluated. Selection of recipient vein , style of anastomosis (end-to-end vs.
