Microvascular Free-Flap Reconstruction


Microvascular free-flap reconstruction is a surgical procedure that involves the transfer of tissue, along with its blood vessels, from one part of the body to another. This technique is commonly used in reconstructive surgery to repair defects or restore function in areas affected by trauma, cancer, or congenital abnormalities. The tissue's blood vessels are reconnected to local vessels at the recipient site using microsurgical techniques, ensuring adequate blood supply and promoting successful healing.
