Extensive scarring and giant nevi on the mid and lower faces places further demands on scar resurfacing in terms of match, size, and thickness. The area of supraclavicular cervical flap is rather limited, but the expansion could expand its utility in facial resurfacing.Rectangular expanders were inserted via the incisions at the upper fringes of clavicles, and implanted under supraclavicular flap areas. After full expansion, the flap based on supraclavicular artery was elevated to cover the defects left by surgical removal of scar or tumor...

BACKGROUND: Disfigurement of the face caused by postburn scars, resected congenital nevi and vascular malformations has both functional and psychological consequences. Ideal reconstruction of the facial components requires producing not only function but also the better appearance of the face. The skin of the neck, supraclavicular or cervicothoracic regions are the most commonly used and the most likely source of skin for facial reconstruction in those techniques which prefabrications with tissue expansion are used...

This study presents 3 cases of women ages ranged from 25 to 52 years with anterior cervical contractures caused by burns that resulted in functional and aesthetic deficit. Contracture release in 3 patients and reconstruction was done using a sub-fascial flap whose main pedicle was the supraclavicular artery and the occipito-postero-cervical vessels that were preserved. The flap was designed differently from the classically described that uses the skin of the shoulder but which presents differences of color and texture with relation to the skin of the neck...

INTRODUCTION: The supraclavicular island flap is a rotational pedicled flap and may have some advantages in head and neck reconstruction compared with free-tissue transfer when this kind of reconstruction is not affordable or recommended. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We present our experience during the year 2016 in the application of the supraclavicular island flap in five cases as an alternative to microvascular reconstruction in several defects after resection of head and neck tumours...

Cervical chylomas are rare pseudocystic collections that lack an epithelial lining and arise from the thoracic duct or its tributaries; although they typically develop after neck surgery or trauma, they can arise from unknown causes. Treatment options include not only conservative therapy, such as dietary modification, repeated aspirations, and sclerotherapy, but also include surgical excision. We describe a case of a chyloma in a 64-year-old Japanese woman with squamous cell carcinoma of the gingiva. The chyloma developed following left segmental mandibulectomy with radical neck dissection and reconstruction, using a titanium plate and a pectoralis major myocutaneous flap...

Anterior cervical contractures of the neck represent a great challenge for plastic and reconstructive surgeons. Necks can be reconstructed with a wide range of surgical techniques, including chimeric flaps, supercharged flap, pre-expanded flaps, "superthin" flaps and perforator flaps. The supraclavicular flap is easy to harvest without the need for free tissue transfer. It provides a relatively large flap for neck resurfacing with tissue very similar to that of the neck. Between January 2013 and March 2015, 20 patients suffering from postburn neck contracture underwent reconstruction with 20 unilateral supraclavicular artery perforator flaps...

The supraclavicular artery perforator (SAP) flap is a versatile flap for the reconstruction of head and neck defects. Recently, the authors have modified the SAP flap by using an anterior branch of the transverse cervical artery. The anterior SAP flap allows the harvest of a tissue island in the deltopectoral fossa, which is even thinner, is more pliable, and shows a superior color match to the face and neck compared with the original SAP flap. Pre-expansion increases flap size considerably, enabling the coverage of extended defects without the need of microsurgery...

BACKGROUND: The anterior chest is an excellent donor site for cervicofacial reconstruction. Studies of chest flaps began as early as 1988 at our institution. We identified a new branch of the supraclavicular artery that nourishes the anterior chest, and on the basis of this finding, we created a new flap called the subclavicular flap. Unlike the supraclavicular flap, which is pedicled by the deltoid branch, this flap is primarily pedicled by the thoracic branch, and it shares similar vascular territory with the deltopectoral flap...

PURPOSE: Drawbacks of the conventional supraclavicular overlay of the pectoralis major myocutaneous flap (PMMF) include the resultant unesthetic cervical bulge and the limited cephalad extension that limits its use to mandibular or cervical defects. This study discusses the technique and comparative advantages of a more esthetic subclavicular route through the clavipectoral fascia that allows an increased arc of rotation to reconstruct orofacial defects. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Patients with orofacial defects that were reconstructed with a PMMF through the modified subclavicular route were included in this retrospective cohort study, which aimed to compare the gain in extension accorded through the modified subclavicular tunnel over an initial conventional supraclavicular overlay...

PURPOSE: A high-quality flap is necessary for repairing faciocervical scar contractures. The supraclavicular region and chest wall are the preferred choices for reconstruction. The supraclavicular island flap (SIF) pedicled by the transverse cervical artery (TCA) has been reported. Compared to the traditional SIF flap, another type of flap pedicled by the anterior perforator of transverse cervical artery (ap-TCA) is more convenient for transfer to the faciocervical area. In this article, we use this type of perforator flap and expanded perforator flap to repair the faciocervical contracture...

BACKGROUND: Reconstruction of defects after extirpation of head and neck cancer is a highly challenging and complex surgical undertaking. Commonly used techniques, e.g., the radial forearm flap, the anterior lateral thigh flap, or flaps harvested from the chest-deltopectoral or pectoralis major-share numerous disadvantages, such as donor-site morbidity, poor color matching for cutaneous reconstruction, and excessive tissue bulk. The use of a supraclavicular artery island flap is a long-forgotten but increasingly popular option for reconstruction in the head and neck area...
