Reconstruction for head and neck defects with the submental flap

1.Flap survival rate:100%
2.Flap reconstruction area:oral cavity, hypopharynx,larynx, neck and sinus.
3.We performed neck dissection and harvested the submental flap at the same time, so no more wound is needed that improve the morbidity of surgery.

Overview
The patient will receive detail cancer staging before surgery. We will performed the surgery on the appropriate cases. Submental flap reconstruction is indicated if the defect size is smaller than  12x7cm2. After wide excision of the cancer lesion, we measure the defect size then design the submental flap which includes submental vessels, digastrics muscle and mylohyoid muscle.We will check the vessel again with doppler scan before closing the wound.
Features
We performed submental flap to reconstruct the oral cavity, oropharynx, hypopharynx and larynx. There are total 70 cases during 2009 to 2013 and only 2 cases with partial lose of flap.No patient needs to receive another reconstructive surgery due to flap failure. These results are outstanding comparing with other published literatures in the world.

1.Flap survival rate:100%
2.Flap reconstruction area:oral cavity, hypopharynx,larynx, neck and sinus.
3.We performed neck dissection and harvested the submental flap at the same time, so no more wound is needed that improve the morbidity of surgery.
4.Shorten the surgical time
