Patients were treated with fasciocutaneous flap (38 cases, 76%), musculocutaneous flap (5 cases, 10%), or perforator flap
(7 cases, 14%) (Figure 1-3).
Therefore she underwent deep inferior epigastric perforator flap
breast reconstruction at the department of plastic and reconstructive surgery.

2] defect, which was addressed by means of a fasciocutaneous loco-regional perforator flap
, based on the first encountered superior epigastric artery perforator (Figure 6), preoperatively identified through infrared thermal imaging (Figure 7).

They will feature two live surgical cases: a microvascular perforator flap
breast reconstruction and a local perforator flap
partial breast reconstruction.
When a pedicled perforator flap
is harvested, the perforator flap
harvesting requires the dissection of vessels as small as 0.

The "Gent" consensus on perforator flap
terminology: preliminary definitions.
Once the perforator flap
is cut, it is than rotated around the identified vascular arteriovenous axis.
Common options include primary closure, skin grafting, local random flaps, muscle flaps and the recently developed pedicled perforator flap
