Abstract :

Background: The pedicled or free temporoparietal fascial has been used in many areas, especially in head and neck reconstruction. This thin, pliable, highly vascularized flap may be also transferred as a carrier of subjacent bone or overlying skin.
Objective: The aim of this study is to report our experience in versatile use of temporo-parietal fascial flap (TPFF) and discuss the surgical anatomy and technique.
Patients and Methods: A total number of 57 TPFFs have been used in periorbital, mid-facial, auricular, and tracheal reconstruction due to tumor resection, trauma, and congenital ear deformities.
Results: All the flaps were successfully transferred without any major complication. The cosmetic results were quite satisfactory to all patients.
Conclusion: The advantages and minimal donor site morbidity of TPPF makes this flap a good choice in many reconstructive procedures.
